II'm exhibiting with the Batik Guild at Naples Botanical Gardens in Florida, USA from 4th May to the 30th June 2024 for the 'Patterns of Change' exhibition. 

This is part of the International Year of Batik celebrations and will feature artists from around the world, each depicting a personal expression of their views on climate change.

My selected piece is a batik on silk titled 'Energy Flows'

I'm also showing two works: 'Life's been good' and 'Moonchild' with the Batik Guild at Rugby Museum and Art Gallery from the 16th July to the 10th August.

A selection of my works: batiks, mosaics and fine art giclee prints of my landscape art can be viewd at my studio in Leicester or at my home in Market Harborough by arrangement.


I've now been an active member of Knighton Lane Artists Group in Leicester for just over a year and A day in the studio now starts with me making random marks on my wall, purely as a symbolic act that I'm open to engage in the mysteries that are the creative process.
There's a willingness to take risks and my recent works have been a deliberate attempt to not only bypass my inner critic, but to be guided by a much more intuitive and wiser guide than my head.
There are often surprises along the way and a surrender so that true creativity can be expressed.
