Mayor of Farnham’s Christmas Painting & Lions Advent Calendar
And here’s me (below left) handing over my painting for the Mayor of Farnham’s official Christmas card. For the third year running I have had the privilege of painting an iconic image for the Mayor to represent Farnham at Christmas. This one is our wonderful almshouses in Farnham in the snow.
I am also delighted to once again be providing the images for the Farnham Lions Advent Calendar this year (below right).
I have been painting seriously for over 30 years and now work out of my small studio in Farnham, Surrey.
Flowers and buildings are my key areas of interest and watercolour is the perfect medium for me to capture both the calm and vitality I always feel in studying my subjects. You can see some examples in my Flower & Nature Gallery. Buildings, especially historic ones, in and around Farnham continue to be popular subjects for many of my commissions. You can see some examples in my Buildings & Architecture Gallery. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and my work has been featured in The Times.
I also have a deep love for my town of Farnham which inspires a lot of my architectural work. The video below produced for my Exhibition at the New Ashgate Gallery gives a flavour of my work and my approach to its creation.
