Art In The Nave Show 2023 at St Mary and St Paul’s Church, Hemel Hempstead


July in a nutshell – art in progress, holiday news and the end of an era.


And with a bang, summer arrived! Temperatures in the high 20s and high humidity, combined with working in coffee shops on a machine whose main purpose is to create steam and very hot water, has been challenging to say the least. I entered the Ayot At Lawrence Art Show for the second year running, submitting […]

Mad March

Well that was a first! March is ‘alleged’ to be the first month of Spring, but this year we’ve got through the whole month without experiencing anything spring-like at all! We’ve had heavy snow, freezing rain, hail, vicious winds and drizzle. The beautiful pink blossoms were blown off almost as soon as they reached full […]

February Frolics

February has been a month of highs and lows in terms of weather, health and art! From unseasonably mild to cold and grey, to frosty and clear, it’s been an unpredictable month! I was fighting off a fluey cold for the first two weeks(not Covid) at the same time as working extra hours at the […]

Night Time -January 2023!

New Night Time Painting – ‘Durham Delight’
Durham is a beautiful, small university city with a magnificent Cathedral and Castle.
A hundred students of the university college have the privilege of living within the castle ; and the general
public can take a tour around parts of this beautiful building.
After the tour we returned to the castle at night and took some stunning photos, which were the inspiration for this painting.
Do you love the way the lights illuminate the leaves on the trees and the puddles on the path?
And how the shadows and light patches make a pattern along the path?
This beautiful painting can be yours!
‘Durham Delight’
Watercolour, soft pastel and acrylic ink on 300gsm cold pressed paper.
A3 ( 12 x 16”)
Mounted with backing board.
£250 plus shipping

Commissions welcome

We began the month with a visit to Dorset to stay with friends in their holiday home. It rained. A lot. I’m sure the area has a lot to offer but we spent most of it inside various eating establishments rather than braving the heavy downpours. I did manage to take some dramatic shots of […]


After the cool and generally damp September, what a delight October has been so far! Autumn is in full dazzling swing, inspiring so many artistic ideas and photography! A new commission came in which included some Autumnal trees which I emphasised to bring the painting to life. Two and a half weeks in to the […]
