Hello folks, and welcome.
I’m so excited to tell you I’ll be teaching a weekend workshop at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, painting the family Zingiberaceae, on the 23rd and 24 September. Here’s a link to their brochure: LINK
This is running in conjunction with the exhibition ‘Plant Scenery of the World’, in Inverleith House, 29 July – 29 October 2017, which looks to be a fantastic exhibition.
I’m currently jumping between paintings, and have my eye on so many plants bursting through that it’s hard to stay focused, a nice problem for a botanical painter at this time of year.
Since my last update, I’ve been down to Kew Gardens for the opening of the summer exhibition at the Shirley Sherwood gallery, which has hung one of my paintings (Globe Artichoke, Lindisfarne Castle) in their British Artists in the Shirley Sherwood Collection exhibition. It’s a gorgeous display, and well worth a visit if you’re down in that there London.
In February I was honoured to receive the Derwent award at the Artists and Illustrators magazine Artists of the Year 2017 competition. I’ve been dabbling, experimenting and generally faffing with all these new materials and techniques. (That was a very exciting delivery.)
If you’re looking for prints, greetings cards, original works or commissions, please drop me a line.
Thanks for reading, enjoy looking around, and happy internetting,
