  1. Had the lovely opportunity to work with the incredibly talented singer/songwriter Kate Garner who commissioned me to design and hand paint an Art Deco poster for her upcoming London musical, the re-write of MAPP & LUCIA the Musical. My painting will be used on the CD cover, the website/posters and the programme. Kate is the daughter of the late 'Chas Hodges' from Chas n Dave the famous wonderful 80's/90's music duo who many of you are sure to remember

    I enjoyed every minute of working with Kate and we were in contact almost daily as I wanted to be spot on making sure I got every facial expression/every little detail right. The end result was a great success and I've gained a friend with whom I have much in common!

    I have been so busy with commissions this November it's been wonderful! Each one so very different too! Hoping to take a couple of weeks off around Christmas to enjoy the build up to the festive season.

  2. I was delighted to be asked to exhibit at this fantastic Art event held over the weekend of 13-14th October with the PV night being held on the 12th where the special guest was the son of the late great painter Robert Lenkiewicz, the talented musician Ruben Lenkiewicz played his guitar.

    This was a huge Art exhibition with over 50 local and National Artists showing their work at Torquay Boys Grammar School in Torquay. Proceeds of the sales 25% went to the school's 6th form future programme. There was some wonderful Art on display by many talented Artists.

    Sales were good for me I sold originals, framed prints and mounted prints and collectible items from my shop with my Art Deco designs and more on them.
