As it goes, I’ve been a busy painter. I’m continually working on the Way of the Pennines collection, (some of which are available at Lost&Found in Holmfirth). I’m also adding working on a slower scale with the North by Northwest collection.

There’s also another body of work in the making — based around the actual village-scapes of Saddleworth & West Yorkshire.

Get in touch if you have any questions.

It’s how I end my evenings | oil on board | 8 x 10 | £200

This is one of several new still lifes. I’m enjoying the space & light between things that do not move. Large spaces or the idea of large spaces have always compelled me.

I’m also going to add a collection of assorted comissions from over the years.

Starts 6th July. I’ll be showcasing 8 oils at a charming little Interior Boutique  called Lost & Found

The owner has decided to open an original art room, so I’m going to be the sacrificial lamb. There’ll be 4 pieces from the Way of the Pennine’s collection & 4 new pieces from Tales of the Terraces.

Lost & Found is located in Holmfirth centre, West Yorkshire. Check out the link above for directions & opening times.

Any Holmfirth Art week sales take a % that’s then donated to MacMillans Cancer charity.
