Marlborough Open Studios

I am an exhibiting member of Marlborough Open Studios, which this year takes place from 6th to 28th July 2024.

Each year numerous artists within a 20 mile radius of Marlborough open their studios for visitors over four weekends in July.

This year I will be exhibiting my work at my Poppins Studio at home and my studio at Parnella House in Devizes Wiltshire.

For more information please see the Events page.

Oil and Water Do Mix!

I have recently returned to working in oils and have set up a new studio dedicated to this medium in my garden.

I currently cannot decide which I prefer more for paint application, palette knife or big brush, so I employ both!

I will be launching my new series of oil paintings in July during Marlborough Open Studios, but in the meantime you can find details and prices of these seascapes on my Works in Oil page.

Jackson's Art Prize 2024

I was very proud to have my works longlisted for the prestigious Jackson's Art Prize this year.

The organisers recieved an amazing 15,345 submissions this year and the judging committees then narrowed it down to a longlist of just 426 artworks which means my entries were in the top 2.7% of entries!

My entries were a series of new still life pastels

  • Apples, Oranges and Wine Bottles
  • Flowers, Fruit, Physalis and Glass
  • Pottery, Plastic Glass, Fruit and Cloth

All details and prices for these paintings can be found on my Current Curated page
