Cambridge Christmas 11

Cambridge Christmas 11 is shaping up nicely.  I started this event in 2008 and it has grown steadily since then.  This year I decided not to exhibit due to other work commitments, but I am organizing it.  There is now a website and I am delighted to reveal the invitation, designed by Alison Hullyer and hot off the press!

Gallery representation

From October 2011 I will be represented by Cambridge Contemporary Art.  I am very excited about this and I am looking forward to exhibiting some of my oil on wood panels during their Christmas exhibition.  Watch this space:-)





David Hockney

I am a big fan of David Hockney and loved this recent BBC interview with him.  He hits the nail on the head when he talks about how we really look at the world.

The Calling of St Matthew, Rome August 2011

CallingOfStMatthewSanLuigideiFrancesiRome11.jpgI have been away for the last few weeks visiting Lazio and Umbria. During my travels I made a special trip to see one of my favourite paintings. The Calling of St Matthew, by Caravaggio hangs in the San Luigi dei Francesi church in Rome. Having seen it in magazines and books for so many years and then to see it in all it's glory was truly wonderful. Caravaggio's use of light and drama is awe-inspiring. Three of his paintings sit together; The Calling of Saint Matthew is the one on the left.









Interview with Noel Garner

Here is the video of an interview of me done by Noel Garner, founder of Cambridge Art Academy, on the advantages of having one’s own dedicated studio. It’s an excellently put together production, and features some shots of my Open Studios private preview party. I prefer to be behind the camera so I hate seeing myself like this – but enjoy. Visit Noel’s website, too, since he is looking to turn these sort of interviews into a commercial venture.
