Helios Rising
31st May 2016 Posted in: Abstract Paintings, News 1

No two sunrises are the same. The cliche fades when confronted by the beauty of the moment. I recently travelled down to the Kent coast to Margate, where I used to live and where the great Mr Turner used to paint the sometimes glorious skies. As well as a beautiful sunset I was lucky enough […]

Beyond Byzantium
30th Mar 2016 Posted in: News 0

In his great poem Sailing to Byzantium, WB Yeats addresses growing old and embarks on a late spiritual journey to a poetic paradise. “And therefore I have sailed the seas and come To the holy city of Byzantium”.

Immersing yourself in something creative, be it Music, Books or Movies etc can be a wonderful release.

Well the day approaches and the year is ending on a high, with an up-coming show in Beirut at the beautiful Villa Paradiso. All the work is delivered and ready for the hang. The theme is Dualities and after a lot of thought this seems an ever more apt title. The more we know about […]

December sees my next solo exhibition, set in the beautiful Villa Paradiso in Beirut, Lebanon. The show is hosted and curated by the wonderful Vanessa Clark of VC Art. It is a show I am very excited about for several reasons. In particular it is all new work on show including a series of works […]

The Ice House Gallery show ended on a real high with many of you saying how much you enjoyed your visit. Taking stock is always interesting and informative.
