Exciting news from Saltaire....The Butterfly Rooms is now under new management and is called Too Nice to Use.

I am very pleased to be showing some work on their walls. The above piece is the derelict greenhouse on the canal side at Hirst Wood, Saltaire. I love greenhouses and I am fascinated with old, new, derelict and the famous!

This piece is 16" x 20" and priced at £295.
Prints of this and other work are available at the shop priced at £75.
My thanks to Simone for this opportunity.

The Bright Greenhouse, Saltaire.

Success at the Royal Watercolour Society!

My lovely painting of The Bright Greenhouse, Saltaire has won one of the prizes at the Royal Watercolour Society!

The prize is The Sentinel Gallery, Wivenhoe, Exhibition Award.

I'm not sure yet what this involves but I am really thrilled.


Also I am putting myself forward for election this year...the results are out on 17th March!

I will be exhibiting at the following:
