2020 promises to be a busy year, with magazine articles (Leisure Painter) and my forthcoming book generating more interest in demonstrations and workshops. My first class of the year is now running, and more dates will be released.
The original paintings featured in my book - mostly of the Isle of Skye and the Lochalsh area of the Highlands - are now available for sale - some will be shown here shortly.
An accident in summer halted my plans to get out and about for new material but I intend to be out again soon seeking out more waterfalls in Derbyshire, then the wider landscape, continuing the waterfall theme that began when I lived on Skye.
I have a few small originals for sale at Skyeworks (Portree, Isle of Skye), and cards, prints and originals at SkyeMakers (Dunvegan, Isle of Skye), locally some originals and prints at Leabrooks Arts Complex and Cromford Gallery, both in Derbyshire. If you're interested in anything you see on this site, please get in touch.
