CURRENTLY EXHIBITING 2018
PREMA ART CENTRE ULEY
I have a very long relationship with Prema Art Centre up in the Cotswolds – I even wrote a blogpost about it some time ago.
Anyway, my work is on their walls again! I used to teach life drawing there and run workshops there too. Indeed when I was around 30 yrs old, with two kids under 5, I went to life drawing there and the tutor suggested I do a degree at the first session. The rest is history.
So DO visit, they have a really love building which is worth the visit alone – an old Bethesda Chapel, and then (apart from the art and events) there are fantastic lunches, cakes and coffee. Here’s a link to their newsletter with more information – you may want to subscribe yourself.
Two new exhibitions and a launch talk about my new book “Severnside – an artist’s view of the Severn”, coming up soon in November (Newnham) and 10th December (Brockweir) 2018.

First batch of new works now hanging in the Newnham Community Library (more soon when clips arrive)
The Newnham Community Library show offers a mix of familiar works and some new ones too. I’ve been experimenting with some hand-tinting of some of my digital prints. I have always enjoyed working with black and white photography in the dark room and recently processed some tinting on my iPad, converting colour to B&W, then tinting with a painting programme. Which led into my getting out my pastels and watercolours and tinting some digital prints.
These past two years have revealed a journey not only of a loop around the Severn, but also circling around various mediums. Panoramic photos became large messy charcoal drawings, which then became digital photographic prints.
180 degree panoramic’s morphed into 360 degree environments, then back to photography. I’ve even being doing some tiny watercolour drawings, informed by the 360 degree stills………..
The next shift is to change River, leaving Severnside and drifting over the forest, down to the Wye Valley. I’m creating a new body about Brockweir and no doubt will travel further along the banks of the Wye over the coming months.
Meanwhile, pop into the Newnham Community Library to see a selection of 360 stills images of the Severn, taken from high up in St. Peters Church bell tower.
