Work in progress



It has taken me a while to establish a regular routine in my studio. However, over the last few weeks I've been working hard preparing canvases and now finally painting. I'm intending to focus on drawing for a while too and have ordered some beautiful, very large sheets of heritage paper. I have a feeling that this is going to be a long process. I've been inspired to draw again (well I never quite stopped - but!) by several artist friends: every time I visit their studios I'm encouraged by their stunning drawings - Fiona Robinson, Kate Smith, Matthew Parsons and Andrea Stokes (see links to a couple of their blogs - right). Although my work is very different to all these artists - it demonstrates how I'm always inspired by other people's artwork (when it's good!).

I have two exhibitions coming up in December. The first at the Tregoning Gallery in Derby opening 4th December, and the second an Art Space Portsmouth group show at the University of Portsmouth called 800ft opening 12th December. Further details to follow.
