Oil paint making workshop

What a rewarding day at University Centre Somerset delivering an oil paint making workshop, giving an artist talk & sharing my work with such great BA Fine Art Degree students.

So engaging & welcoming. Discussing the materiality of paint, the passion for colour & the importance of drawing.

In the studio

Working in the studio in isolation these last few weeks has helped me to immerse myself in my Alaska inspired works. In series oil & pigment paintings on plywood & canvas and line drawings in charcoal pencil on Fabriano paper. These are all works in progress using colour & drawing into painting.

Exhibition at Gallery Spaces Bristol

A big thank you to everyone that came to support myself and Shirley Sharp at our first joint exhibition in a most wonderful gallery space in the heart of Bristol. We had an amazing week and met some very interesting people with whom we had great cultural conversations about art, music, food and poetry.
