It’s been a busy week in the gallery and two dog portraits were collected and I’m glad to say they were both loved by the owners . I adore doing my animal portraits and everyone I do is a personal challenge for character and likeness in my unique , bold style . It also means I get to meet fantastic people that put their trust in me to paint their loved ones . It’s a real honour for me to do these . If I can do a pet portrait for you or you would like to talk about having one done , please pop into the gallery or send me a message . ( the photo is an old portrait , can’t show the new ones yet )

Another sunny Fold Market Day has arrived and it is good to be back in the gallery and welcoming in my lovely visitors. Sweet peas are for sale at the market and are filling the gallery with their scent. I am busy packing up my new collection of cards and hanging my canvas prints ready for you all to come and see. Please drop in and see me some time, I would love to see you and if you are feeling suitably inspired join me for a workshop to explore your artistic potential. More details to follow of new workshops. Enjoy the last day of the summer holidays!!

A recent trip to Cornwall revealed a hidden exhibition of the fabulous Dame Laura Knight's work at Penley House in Penzance including a series of sublime portraits - all of which looked even better in the flesh! There was also a fabulous painting of Malvern as seen from the Mount Pleasant hotel during Laura Knight's stay in Malvern in the 1940s/50s. Well worth a visit if you are in Cornwall this summer.

It is no wonder that so many artists move to Cornwall for its incredible light and rugged coastline - Mullion Cove on the Lizard Peninsula inspired me to start sketching again and here are a few pages from my sketchbook which hopefully will find their way into a painting some time this space.....
