Earlier this year I had work exhibited with Art Van Go in Knebworth, The Wynd Gallery in Letchworth, and at the New Maynard Gallery in Welwyn Garden City. Sadly all other planned exhibitions over the summer were cancelled. However, my main news this year is that just before lockdown I moved from a shared studio near Hitchin, into my own, purpose-built studio at home. So through lockdown I have been busy 'nesting' and settling in to my new space, revelling in the fact that all I...

I’m currently working hard in my home studio during the lockdown. Unfortunately, I can’t access the studio in Barnet that I use as this is locked. I’m currently painting some seascapes and coastal subjects in oils, but while waiting for the paint to dry, I’m working on some abstract subjects using designers gouache.

Inspired by vector skylines I’ve created a number of fantasy abstracted skylines, surrounded by Levantine, Turkish and Asian derived patterns.
