  1. I was thrilled to have been invited to apply to this prestigious bi-annual popular Art show in Doddiscombsleigh. Some 400 applicants narrowed down to 70 acceptances.

    Not quite knowing what to expect I turned up to the address and was somewhat surprised by the sheer size of the venue! After handing my paintings to be exhibited I waited excitedly until the PV night to see all of the other Art there.

    The PV night was packed! Hundreds of people turned up,  sales were made and the evening was an enjoyable one indeed! 

    Here are some photos from the night.

  2. After much preparation inbetween exhibitions I finally finished 5 new original paintings and dozens of framed and mounted prints including Agatha Christie based paintings and Art deco for the Agatha Christie Art exhibition of which I was part of at The Grand Hotel in Torquay, held during the International Agatha Christie Festival 2017.

    It was a real success, I was there every day for 5 days and met some fantastic people including some customers I produce commissions for.

    Not only did I get new commission work I sold some original paintings and many prints, including Art Deco cushions and mugs with my designs on them. 

    It was fantastic as everybody dressed up in vintage attire to be in-keeping with the theme. It was a lovely atmosphere, we even had a selection of 20's and 30's music playing everyday!

    Here are a few photos of the exhibition
