Happy New Year.
I am currently revamping my website in order to reflect my current working practice. My MA Printmaking studies at Anglia Ruskin University is well under way. Alongside this I will be continuing to teach solarplate printmaking classes and private oil painting lessons as well as take part in invited exhibitions.
My original prints can be purchased at Cambridge Contemporary Art and the VK Gallery and oil paintings at Gallery Plus.
I am thrilled to have been highlighted in the November edition of Real Cambridge.
Real Cambridge is part of the Cambridge News Group and it is a wonderful newspaper showcasing the independent traders of Cambridge. Pick up your copy around the town today.
I have become increasingly interested in Printmaking during these past few years. A few weeks ago I started on a new venture - studying part-time for an MA in Printmaking at Anglia Ruskin University.
I will continue to keep up my commercial practice and supply my representing galleries during the next two years but it will be interesting to see how my work will change during my studies.
On Thursday 22 September until Wednesday 28 September 2016 the second Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale (COPB) opens its doors at The Pitt Building on Trumpington Street, Cambridge.
Cambridge is a hotbed of talented Printmakers and I am one of the founders of this exhibition. We wanted to bring this unique printmaking community together and to help demystify to a wider audience what an original hand-pulled print actually is.
39 Printmakers who specialise in hand-pulled originals have been selected to exhibit their latest collections. Print Houses, Printmaking Education Centres and the MA Printmaking students from Anglia Ruskin University will also be exhibiting.
My preferred hand-pulled printmaking method is solarplate etching. I will be launching a new landscape collection titled 'Middle Ground'. This is my reaction to the growth of the city I currently live in. If you would like to find out more than come along to the exhibition and talk to me. I will be there most days from 10.30am until 5pm, except for Tuesday 27th Sept (on Weds 28th doors will close at 4pm).

I will be on the radio today, Monday 12 September with my fellow founders of Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale.
Just before my Cambridge Open Studios in July the Cambridge based glossy magazine - Cambridge Edition ran an article on some of the exhibitors. Five of my images were chosen for the magazine and you can read the article here.
A selection of my oil paintings will be off to Gallery Plus in Norfolk next month. More details will follow soon...
Watch out in Cambridge for my posters and cards advertising the Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale 2016.
Doors open at 10.30 am on Thursday 22 September 2016.
On the Up...
Other Side of the Wilderness
Into the Unknown...
Twists and Turns...
What an amazing July 2016.
Cambridge Open Studios saw us greet 650 independent-arts interested people through the doors in the two weekends we were open. A record number so many thanks to everyone who came along.
My Cambridge Walkabout etchings that were in the window at Cambridge Contemporary Art, Trinity Street all sold out with deposits taken for etchings yet completed.
I was also on the radio with the BBC show with Jeremy Sallis with fellow Printmaker Nina Sage and then on the tele with BBC Look East with fellow Painter Jane Evans promoting Cambridge Open Studios two weeks ago.
Now onto an even busier September with Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale!
