Chess Boards, Gallery reopening, hope. 20 March 21

Well it’s been a while since my last Blog.  Covid has come along and I don’t need to go into that as we’ve all been there.   What it did was to change the way I paint, as witnessed  by the smaller fruit and veg paintings you can see in the Catalogue at the top of the Home Page. I really enjoy painting these and they sell well.  I paint anything that catches my eye, flowers, fruit, donuts, interesting veggies etc.  They are framed in white and cost £70. I am also available for commissions. I also sell prints and you can find them at Recently, with the success of the film ‘The Queen’s Gambit’, there has been an upsurge in playing chess, particularly online, and I have received a flurry of commission requests for specific chess piece compositions, as well as poker card and poker chip compositions.  I am always happy to undertake commissions;  the requests keep my own ideas fresh.  Please DM or email me for more info and any of your own requests.  I paint anything within reason 😜.

Technical Glitches! And new paintings

First and foremost, my apologies over a technical glitch.  I was fortunate in that a prospective buyer emailed me having had no response to the enquiry sent through the Contact Form on my site here.  I would have had no idea there was a problem, so I am very grateful for that email and the Contact Form has now been removed.  If you HAVE tried to contact me that way, may I suggest you contact me via my email and I will respond immediately.  Thanks. North Gallery Workspace will be reopening on the 4 July, with appropriate social distancing measures put in place.  I am very excited about this as it is a Gallery run by artists and up until lockdown had been doing very well.  We have been busy repainting and refurbishing the space and are going to be increasing our online presence big time.  I will be updating information here, so keep looking ! I have been inundated with commissions recently for the small fruit/veg/donut paintings so please bear with me time wise.  I really enjoy painting these and welcome commissions so please get in touch to discuss colours, subjects etc.  I am thinking of painting  lipsticks…
