"Immersed in the mystery of the natural world, this collection of paintings in water media (with plastic and other found objects), champions the coral reef life under threat from plastic pollution and looking beyond the picturesque, hints at the connection between fishing practices, the threat to underwater life from abandoned fishing gear and our insatiable appetite for seafood."

Group exhibition with CAS in Hyde Hall’s new Exhibition Gallery.
An Exhibition and Sale of Wildlife Art
Online auction of donated pieces to raise money for Wildlife through Explorers against Extinction.
The idea was for each artist or celebrity to spend 26 minutes creating a sketch or piece of art to be donated to the cause - 26 minutes being significant because that is how often an elephant is killed!
I chose to donate a watercolour painting of a Hawksbill Turtle, completed in about 45 minutes.
Proceeds from the sale will help to fund work like this:
- There are less than 500 Sumatran Tigers left in the World. Our work will better equip the rangers who patrol the two National Parks where most of them live, removing snares and preventing illegal land clearance.
The Exhibition includes some amazing pieces and amusing celebrity efforts. Do check the dates and schedule of cities on the poster, including 2 venues in London and 2 in New York or go online to
To bid on the pieces, starting as low as £50, visit the auction listings at
Members of Activate were invited to create a piece of art in based on a sketch by Steve Foster, which was the basis for his sculpture of the same title: The Vamp. Our members were so taken with this suggestion that The Vamp now exists in many different styles and mediums. We wanted to exhibit the pieces as a collection and that opportunity has arisen through Brentwood Art Trail, later this summer.
The image shows my acrylic painting of The Vamp.
I am delighted to announce that I now have a Studio space at HOFS in Hadleigh, where I have been teaching my regular watercolour workshops for the last four years. I am sharing Studio 20 with Ingrid Thorpe, an oil painter.
The studios will be open to visitors over the August Bank Holiday weekend and I will be offering a free taster workshop at 1.30 pm on Sunday 26th August, 2018.
I have three seascapes/boat paintings in this lovely exhibition in Brightlingsea, Essex.
Several of the Chelmsford Art Society members will be showing small to medium sized pieces in a group exhibition. I will be showing a selection of my watercolours, framed under glass.
The Gallery is in the centre of the Gosfield Shopping Village and Craft Centre, with great parking, café and antiques etc. (see map for location).
Do JOIN US on Sunday 5th August, 1-3 pm for live jazz (Evergreen Standards), too!

Group Exhibition curated by the Gallery of West Indian Art, as part of Round Hill Hotel's annual charity event in aid of Hanover Charities. The highlight of the week is the Sugarcane Ball, under the patronage of Ralph and Ricky Lauren, who were honoured this year for their continued support of this charity.
Fundraising Event, Charity Ball and Exhibition, with silent auction, in aid of the Montego Bay Animal Haven. Much fun was had by all. Congratulations to the new owners of the three paintings I sold. Look out for more news of Fur Ball 2 to come at Halloween 2018!
I'm exhibiting with the Chelmsford Art Society in the Museum at Oaklands Park in Chelmsford over the Christmas period. It promises to be an interesting and varied selection and the standard of our members work is high. The art is for sale.
I was thrilled that the Museum chose my dragonfly image called "Summer's Lease" to create the poster and invitations and also honoured to be asked to hang my large scale canvas painting "The School Run" in the front window. You'll see this as you approach the Museum's front entrance.
Ten of my paintings in acrylic on canvas were chosen by the Gallery to exhibit as a 'supporting act' to Carol Saunderson's work. The body of work comprises mostly animals in blocky brushwork, focussing on colour and pattern, including my two SAA award-winning pieces.
