Should we shudder at Friday 13th?  Well 2017’s will never be forgotten.

Visual Influences

Windows, architecture, museum displays, window displays, fashion, reflections, glistening gold, inky warm blues, brilliant turquoises, deep rich reds, russets and browns. A rich tapestry of history waiting to tell its story and share its drama and excitement visually and metaphorically.


Waste not Want Not

  Graffiti on a Florence wall. It was near the Pitti Palace. I looked for it this summer it had been removed. I was glad for the buildings and preservation of the city but it had stayed in my heart. As has the work of Yinka Shonibare which I have had the privilege of seeing at […]

It was also a compliment to be asked by Bruce to design a new show for him at Mount Edgcumbe, Cornwall where he exhibited with Miss Ivy’s […]

A little taste of what is to come. My face book page tells the story and I am spending a lot of time rebuilding this site and adding art work for sale. It takes as much time marketing as creating and I really wish I could clone myself to get all the jobs done […]
