Effects of development on urban trees

I am currently working on a site-specific module for my MA Printmaking course at Anglia Ruskin University.

Due to my interest in the juxtaposition of urban development and the effect on trees I have situated my work within the city central Cambridge Botanical Gardens.

This is a subject close to my heart and one that will be on-going after the completion of my masters final project.

For more information please do email me.

New Cambridge etchings

Four new Cambridge Walkabout A3 solarplate etchings will be available at Cambridge Contemporary Art in July 2017.

Kings College Chapel, bikes outside Peterhouse College, punts resting on the river Cam and the old cherry tree that used to be outside Clare College will be the latest editions to the Cambridge Walkabout collection.  They will be shown at the summer exhibition at Cambridge Contemporary Art, Trinity St who have exclusive rights to the collection.

Working update

Here is a small detail of the painting I am working on for the Addenbrooke's Arts commission.

The finished painting, destined for the Haematology Department will be 110 x 110 cm.  There is still a long way to go.

I paint in thin layers building from lean to fat. This often results in at least 40 layers of oil paint mixed with medium.

This Country Life exhibition

I have been selected to take part in an exhibition at The Babylon Gallery from Friday 24th February until 19 March 2017.

The Private Preview is from 6pm-8pm on Friday 24 February and then can be viewed from Tuesday - Sundays 10 -4pm thereafter until 16 March 2017.

2017

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.

Real Cambridge

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.

MA Printmaking

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.

 

Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale 2016

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).
For more information and to book to hear the free talks go to www.cambridgeoriginalprintmakers.com
