I went back to one of the private views Summer Exhibition with the family a few days ago and as we went into room V11, it was a thrill to see a red dot by my painting, especially as it was sold before the exhibition had even opened to the public. I was also very pleased to see so many red dots on many of my neighbours’ paintings – I hope you like ‘our wall’ if you are able to visit. The exhibition runs from 21/6 until 21/8:- more information about the Summer Exhibition
Monday was ‘Varnishing Day’ At the Royal Academy and a first chance to see our paintings in this year’s Summer Exhibition. I was very pleased to see my painting in room V11 which has been curated by Farshid Moussavi RA. You can see a video of the whole room here:- a short walk-through room V11 at the Summer Exhibition

My landscape ‘Bradwell from Tollesbury’ has been shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2022 – what great news! I nearly didn’t enter, but then decided I’d submit this one about 2 days before the deadline – glad I did now.
The painting is on canvas and is a mixed media landscape of Tollesbury salt marshes in Essex- an unusual and beautiful place with unique vegetation and wonderful light, overlooking the river Blackwell estuary across to Bradwell sands and the decommissioned Bradwell power station. It’s an area that I love to try and capture in paint, ink and collage and this is one of a series I’ve made of the area.

After a difficult year when it was hard to paint very much (or to update my website at all!!) it was lovely to have news that ‘Welcome to Peckham’ has been pre-selected for the RI Watercolours 2022 exhibition at the Mall Galleries.
It’s a mixed water-media painting of one of my ‘local landmarks’ – The Prince of Peckham. After having several of my dress paintings selected in previous years, it’s flattering to have a painting from one of my very different genres shortlisted for this prestigious exhibition.
I was very pleased to hear that “The Staircase’ has been selected for the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour 2021 exhibition at the Mall galleries, London from 20-29 May (pre-booking for the exhibition is required!)

2 of my watercolour paintings have been pre-selected for the Royal Institute of Watercolours exhibition at the Mall galleries. ‘Bessie’s Dress’ is a collage made from many fragments of hand painted pieces of paper with varied tartan and plaid effects. I really enjoyed making this painting. ‘Nancy’s Dress’ is a nod to the 20’s, now that we are in the 20’s again but was made before we knew what an awful start to the new decade was to come. Take care and stay safe, everyone.

Prints of this artwork are available on paper or canvas, along with more details of it – Cuban Venetian prints available – Saatchiart
The collage is composed of fragments of some of my old paintings and tiny slivers of some of my digital prints and photographs of the cities, some of which I used as image transfers onto textured gesso to recreate the crumbling facades of many of the buildings in both Venice and Havana.
