    What a fantastic Art Exhibition it was! Filled with fine Art from around 70 local talented Artists each painting was unique. It was amazing to see so many different interpretations of one building!

    The exhibition was organised by the lovely Dr Lisa Gibbons a talented Artist friend of mine Jayne Farleigh. They did an amazing job over many many months to make sure the whole exhibition went off without 'a hitch' and it did! The PV night was incredibly busy. Hundreds of people were in attendance including a wonderful carol recital from the talented choristers from the Exeter Cathedral School and a speech from the Bishop of Exeter Sr Robert Atwell. An amazing introductory speech was given by the very flamboyant wonderful socialite Sally Sedgman who gives speeches and spends her time living between her Devon home and London. The choristers sung beautifully they really did. The building is almost 1000 years old and one of the most awesome Cathedrals in the Country. We were lucky to have such an amazing venue to exhibit our work.

    25% of the money raised from sales went to the upkeep of the Cathedral and the choristers fund. The exhibition ran throughout the last week of November and the first half of December.

    I was thrilled to sell one of my originals I was exhibiting there called 'This Most Holy Night'

  2. This one was a fun task! I re-designed my teenage boys bedroom and hand painted the colourful canvas included here in the photos that was taken from an existing picture and changed and re-adapted to my own design. Needless to say he was thrilled with the transformation!

    These are a few options you can think about when choosing colour, design and accessories that are bang up to date, modern and really work.

    I am going to work on a series of unique teenage pop art in the new year available to buy. I am also commissioned regularly to paint unique bespoke pictures for any ocassion.

    If you are interested in having some unique artwork for your any room in your home, office, interior space then feel free to contact me, please see the 'Commissions' section in this website to give you an idea of pricing.
