What a year, and it’s not over yet! – Speaking at TEDxBristol, exhibiting mollusc drawings with the Society Of Wildlife Artists, showing figure paintings at the Body Dysmorphic Disorder Foundation conference, and painting Jay Rayner to win my heat of Portrait Artist Of The Year are highlights… Celebrate the joy of creativity at my Open Studio this weekend – a short walk from both Future Leap locations. See where I work, work in progress and finished pieces.

  • You can see the self portrait that got me onto the program (the semi-final will be broadcast on NowTV and Freeview on Wednesday 29th)
  • Subject to availability, rifle through my ‘burn pile’ and help yourself to something.
  • Lots of original sketches at an event-only price of £25
  • Paintings, drawings and linocuts for sale, including some recent pieces available for the first time.

The studio will be open 11am-4pm Saturday and Sunday. There’s nothing like the smell and feel of fresh oil paint, it just can’t be conveyed on a digital screen!
