Welcome to my website - I hope you enjoy your visit.
My painting, Horse Chestnut, is currently on show at the Shirley Sherwood Gallery in Kew Gardens as part of the 'British Artists in the Shirley Sherwood Collection' exhibition. As ever, it's a fascinating exhibition and well worth a visit if you can make it. If you live too far away, you can get a flavour of the exhibition from this post by Katherine Tyrrell.
For those of you who are botanical artists, there is going to be a worldwide day of botanical art held on May 18th 2018. Many different countries will be involved in holding exhibitions of artworks of their native plants and the UK contribution will be based at the Ruskin Library in Lancaster. More information about the UK exhibition is here. If you are interested submitting a painting for the juried exhibition see the call for entries here.
More information on the other countries involved can be seen here on the website for the project, hosted by the American Society of Botanical Artists.
I work with Tees Valley Wildlife Trust on our local native plants here in the UK. You can see some of our work at the Cleveland Coast Wildflowers website here and our current project Woodland Diaries here.
I will be at the American Society of Botanical Artists Conference this October in San Francisco, California. I'm demonstrating my watercolour technique, teaching a one-day course about shadow colours, and giving a talk on making photographic notes. If you are going to the conference do say hello.
