Week long residency at Brisons Veor

Two storms didn't deter my efforts at creating in splendid isolation during a residency and Brisons Veor on Cape Cornwall.

Working mainly on a new series of diptychs, featuring monkeys, with some birds and other animals appearing too. 3 larger paintings also were completed, there could not have been a more perfect place in which to concentrate soley on painting and drawing.

The Chosen One selected for NSA show

Very pleased to anounce that my diptych 'The Chosen One' has been selected for the NSA critics choice exhibition at Tremenheere sculpture park, Near Penzance. The piece has already garnered the comment 'pretentious and offensive' I am very pleased my work has made someone think and react.



Mentoring with Jason Walker

I am very pleased to have been awarded a bursary for a mentoring programme by Cultivator. Based in Krowji, they are an organisation funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund, Arts Council England and Cornwall Council who give grants to artists for creative busines development. The fruits of this programme are alredy appearing, and I feel that my approach to painting has become significantly more confident and informed. We have been looking particularly at Walter Sickert and his suggested rather than resolved paint handling.


If you like can pat my head, on till the 5th of August

The private view for my solo show at Daisy lang's new gallery in Chapel street, Penzance, was very well attended. A big thank you to Kate Jones for making all this possible.

Monkey and I performed. Three paintings have already sold. Viewers found that the space worked well with my small scale paintings and one attendee said the show was coherent and very interesting. There will be a closing event on the 5th of August (7pm till 10pm) with catering by Katie and Nick who have set up a delightful tea room at Daisy Lang's as an offshoot of their Little Wonder caravan venture, usually parked on the Prom.


I have grown a tail.
