I was pleased to have been accepted for the third year running for a place on the Melbourne Arts Festival held in September each year and more recently for the open exhibition at the Cank Street Gallery in Leicester.

I try to split my time between my commission paintings and original art work.

RECENT EXHIBITIONS

At the 2012 Melbourne Festival I was awarded the best painting in the open exhibition and the prize was a cheque for £100 and a place on the Arts Trail at the 2013 Festival. The Melbourne Festival is held in September each year and can be recommended as a good day out for anyone with an interest in the arts and crafts. I was also selected to exhibit at the 2014 Melbourne Festival.

My painting 'Ladies Day' was selected for inclusion in the 2014 calendar sold in aid of the Injured Jockeys Fund in association with the Society of Equestrian Artists. The selected painting were displayed in the Mall Galleries, London in the presence of HRH The Princess Royal who is the patron of the fund.

My paintings have also been shown recently at Gadsbys in Leicester and in Thoresby Gallery which is situated in the grounds of Thoresby Hall.
