Affordable Art Fair
08 June 2013 14:08
I´m back for the Affordable Art Fair Hampstead Heath. Have left it a bit late to offer people free entry tickets - but if you see this and want one - please get in touch. It´s from 13th to 16th June. I´m part of a print group called Printmakers Inc. Stand number D1.
Phew! Got in again!

I´m very pleased that this year I got two prints into the Royal Academy Summer Show. One very large one called ´King´ which follows through my ´man from industry´ theme. This is a linocut and my first linocutting venture since college so was very pleased with the way it came out. The second is ´Stuff´ which is a tiny etching commenting on cramped living conditions faced by families today. Two very different prints so am really pleased they both got in! You can see both in my artwork portfolio section.
Whole year has gone!

I can´t believe a whole year has passed and I am here again waiting to find out whether I get any prints into the Royal Academy Summer Show. Just got a letter in the post telling me I´ve passed the first stage of selection. Fingers crossed!

Rain Stay Away!
30 June 2012 14:04
I´ll be at Urban Art again this year (14th & 15th July), 10am to 6pm exhibiting a large range of work as I´ve secured double pitches on both days! Last year I was rained out and lost some work and frames due to rain damage in the time it took us to manically load up the car with the work once the rain started pouring. It was sad especially as a number of my loyal fans had made their way especially to see me and look at latest work. If you´re planning on coming along ... and the weather is torrential rain ... please feel free to give me a call to check I´m there still 0795 2772663.
So I got in!

Very pleased to say I got Tunnel Vision accepted in the Royal Academy Summer Show this year. And although I didn´t get Novelty in, a member of staff from the hanging team told me that they had originally put both prints up but then took Novelty down to make space for another artist´s work. That´s ok. I´m happy and the sales are starting to roll in ...
Ahh ... the waiting is endless!

Waiting to hear whether I got in the the Royal Academy Summer Show this year. Each day checking the post. I submitted a huge piece of work - a tour de force of etching called Tunnel Vision! It´s so big I haven´t figured out how to photograph it for the gallery section of this site. Fingers crossed.

Rained out of Urban Art!
17 July 2011 18:57
An apology to people who went along to Urban Art this year expecting to see me and my work. I was there yesterday. It took an hour to set up and then the rain started and didn´t stop! Frames were getting wet, one frame had water lodged inside it after only seconds. My portfolio trapped a small pool of water where all my unframed stock was sitting and my wife and I decided to get everything in the car and home as soon as we could to try to save as many of the prints and frames as possible. There was no let up all the way home - the rain poured and poured until that was we drove into our street. Then the rain stopped and out came the sunshine! It then took several hours of hard work to take all my artwork out of the card and wrap it was in, losing tens of pounds worth of card stock as it had buckled in the rain. Luckily, I caught the prints in time and so far none are damaged. One very large frame might not be usable. The BBC forecast heavy rain for Sunday so we stayed at home. Sadly, for me it turned out to be quite a nice day most of the time!
I feel sad about this weekend. Urban Art is usually a lot of fun and much needed encouragement from fans and passers by and on a practical level ... it usually pays for our seaside break. What a shame! Sorry folks - I know some of you have been in touch to say you went there and didn´t find me!
