The Ridgeway pictures

To reply to me personally please use my email

The Ridgeway series of pictures depict scenes from the 85 mile National Trail that incorporates one of the oldest ‘green roads’ in Europe.  The scenic route stretches from Overton Hill in the west, across the Marlborough Downs and the Vale of the White Horse, to the Chilterns and Ivinghoe Beacon in the east.  These collages and paintings form part of my ongoing series of the Ridgeway.  All pictures can be seen on my website The Ridgeway, UK

I am exhibiting this new series at the pop-up gallery Art on the Hill, Brill School, The Firs, Buckinghamshire, HP18 9RY.

Friday 15th April at 7.30pm (invitation only)

Saturday 16th April 10-5pm

Sunrise selected for ING Discerning Eye Exhibition

My painting Sunrise in Snowdonia has been selected for the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition 2014, Mall Galleries, London.

The painting brings back memories of the 4 o’clock start to begin the Welsh 3000’s walk – the light was superb!


The ING Discerning Eye Exhibition 2014

The Discerning Eye annual exhibition is a show of small works independently selected by six prominent figures from different areas of the art world: two artists, two collectors and two critics. Work is selected from open submission and from artists invited by the individual selectors. Each selector’s section is hung separately giving the impression of six small exhibitions within the whole.

Thu 13 – Sun 23 November, 10am – 5pm, admission free and all works are for sale
