Current Work and Events

Current series

I am currently making a series of paintings inspired by gardens called Enchanted Moments. I  will be taking a selection of these paintings to Rochester Art Fair on 3rd-5th May in the Corn Exchange in the historic city centre. 

Paintings from this series and other paintings are also currently on display from 6th April -12th May at the Under the Rainbow Spring Exhibition at Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent which is a very popular exhibition of over 70 artists. Thank you so much to the organisers and judges for awarding "Summer's Day at Lullingstone" (top left) an Award of Distinction

The Valley Beneath

The Valley Beneath began as a search for inspiration in the winter landscape and became a series focussing on autumn and winter skies above the Darent Valley. 

Events in Nov-Dec 2023

From November 2023 some of my originals will be on display and available to purchase at Holwood Farm Shop Cafe near Downe in Kent. In November I also took part in SoCro Art Fair in South London

In December 2023 I was delighted to visit Castle Farm Shop near Lullingstone for a very chilly but enjoyable day with a stall in the farmshop courtyard. I also returned to the Paxton Centre in Crystal Palace London SE19 for a group exhibition from 1st-30th December

Reflected Journey

Thank you to contributors on Instagram who helped me find the right name for this series!! This series includes a number of studies and paintings inspired by rivers, streams and brooks,  especially the River Darent in Kent.  It captures the light, reflections and different atmosphere along its course.  Deep purples and blues set against vibrant splashes of colour are the palette for these riverside paintings.

Rochester Art Fair

In October 2023 I was in the historic city of Rochester in Kent for a fabulous weekend at the Art Fair.

Ancient Ways

A theme I return to time and time again- the beauty of country lanes and how they wind their way through the landscape, sometimes cutting deep into the earth where thousands of journeys have been made. Part of a group exhibition at the Paxton Centre in Crystal Palace, London, July 2023.

The Wood from the Trees

A series focussed on trees and woodland. It included studies of the compositions created by the trees and vegetation, some of the details of plants within it and paintings capturing the quality of light, colour and texture amongst the trees.
