"The competition brings together artists all across the UK and around the world and at its heart celebrates and redefines the beauty and diversity of watercolour and water based media. With approximately 100 works selected by a panel of leading figures from the art world, and a touring exhibition of the shortlisted works, it's an opportunity not to be missed"

After missing 2020 due to Covid the Peak District Artisans were very happy to be able to go ahead with the Great Dome Art Fair in September 2021. Featuring an exciting collection of artworks by some of the Peak District's finest artists, craftspeople and artisans.
A collection of my original architectural paintings were on display at The Cromford Gallery where I was featured artist in September.
I am delighted with the finished results of the four day painting event at Haddon Hall this Christmas. 271 visitors participated and I would like to thank everyone who took part and painted a section. The design incorporates architectural elements and patterns from the stunning medieval building with historical emblems and jewel like colours. A photograph of the final artwork was included in the Christmas card to the queen.
Limited Edition Prints of 'Haddon Harlequin' are available.
I was very excited to take over the yellow gallery at the historic Didsbury Parsonage with a solo exhibition of my original paintings. The collection of work called 'Colourful Places' was inspired by the Landscapes, gardens and buildings in my favourite places and featured Buxton, Manchester, Tuscany and Derbyshire. It was quite an honour to exhibit in this beautiful grade 1 listed building where Turner had once shown his work!
This summer has been a busy one with work selected for the Derbyshire Open, a second Buxton Fringe nomination, the Great Dome Art Fair and I was delighted to win the Buxton Spa Prize People's Choice Award for my painting of the Cavendish Arcade which I called 'Cavendish Kaleidoscope'. I enjoyed capturing the interior and exterior views of this beautiful Victorian building with decorative abstract elements and vibrant colours. Giclee prints of Cavendish Kaleidoscope can be purchased from my shop.
I was chuffed to bits when my design ‘Sneeze-bee’ was selected for the Manchester ‘Bee in the City’ Sculpture Trail. 101 giant bees were placed at locations throughout the city and the event was visited by thousands. My colourful design was inspired by the shapes and patterns of magnified pollen - hence Sneeze-bee! It now has a permanent home outside the Medicines Evaluation Unit at Wythenshawe hospital.
