So pleased that another of my paintings has been chosen for the front cover of Life in Farnham again!
This is Timber Close in Farnham, the painting also features in my new 2019 Calendar.
There is a feature on me in the March edition of Keeping it Local particularly about my passion for painting local architecture.
KEEPING IT LOCAL : March 2018
It is said that otters are on their way back to the River Wey and to celebrate and encourage people to look our for them there is an Otter Walking Trail in and around Farnham marked by life-
I was asked to paint one of them which is now finished in time for the Farnham Walking Festival in May and June (see right).
I was also featured in an article in Life in Farnham about the otter painting.
(Me in action below).

SURREY ARTIST OF THE YEAR 2018
I am so thrilled to be one of the finalists for Surrey Artist of the Year, as voted by the public attending Surrey Open Studios this year.
I am one of 14 finalists who will have work on show at The New Ashgate Gallery in an exhibition open from 15th September to 3rd November. Each finalist artist has three pieces of work on show and the public are invited to vote again for their favourite artist. The one with the most votes, combined with open studio votes and a judging panel, will win. The time is limited to vote as the awards ceremony is on October 12th.
These are the three works that will be on show to vote on.
