Drawn From Life

Really excited to be making plans for a new collaboration exhibition with Laura Froude, a new artist friend who also lives and works in Folkestone.

Drawn from Life and other Stories is part of the Creative Foundation’s Open Quarter season in June 2018 – with a really exciting programme overall.

In the Woodshed Studio, perched on the historic Bail Steps, our work is taking shape and we will officially open the exhibition to the public on Friday June 15th.

New Work for 2019

Already busy with new work for an Exhibition in April…

collaborating with fellow Folkestone artist,

Candida Wright

– carvings in stone and wood, drawings and paintings.

Work in progress, exploring a long held passion for horses. I’m painting direct on boards, using acrylic and liquid pencil.

I also have commissioned portraits on the easel,

no time for slacking!

The Woodshed is generally open at weekends between 11 – 4.30pm.

Usually working in the studio during the week. Call to check if you’d like to visit…

Shy And Retiring 23rd Aug – 8th Sept

In August, we open a new and unusual exhibition, which is a collaboration with my partner Jon – Shy and Retiring.  There is a clue, in that he reaches a fine old age this month!

We look forward to welcoming visitors for an eclectic retrospective with a mix of artworks, artefacts, writings and music which tell the story of our time together and a bit beyond even that!
