I am currently exhibiting with York Art Workers Association at the Pyramid Gallery in Stonegate York. Please do drop by and see this wonderfully diverse exhibition showing the work of many inspirational local artists. Exhibtion runs until 23 February and despite the roadworks, Stonegate is fully open for business. The Pyramid Gallery is at the Minster end of Stonegate, and also stocks wonderful local jewellery and ceramics.

I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year and wish you all peace, health & happiness for 2020.


The start of the year has been busy preparing for the York Art Worker's Exhibition at the Pyramid Gallery in beautiful Stonegate, close to York Minster. More information to follow shortly.


I have also been busy sketchbooking and preparing for York Open Studios this April. Here is a recent piece.

As well as working from quick thumbnail charcoal drawings and watercolour sketches I like to do small painting studies which I can refer back to when tackling larger pieces. Here are some working sketches which will be on display at my Open Studio in the Spring.

I've been painting some woodland scenes recently - I love trees- they are always a joy to paint, throughout the passing seasons!
