I occasionally set up a temporary Open Studio to give visitors a chance to see my new work, to see a range of paintings in progress at different stages, and to discuss techniques and working methods.

Yvonne Barnett has exhibited her silver jewellery, stained glass and prints with me at the same locations.  You can take a look at  one of our garden /studio exhibitions below - in this case we were invited by  Bob and Jean Jones to take over the leafy setting of their garden and new studio for a few weeks.  Take a quick tour via the button below.
