Crocus.

In my paintings over the years, a particular motif might hold my attention over a number of paintings. It may have been wooden animals, feathers, book covers, sailboats or certain ceramics. Recently, I have found that birds have appeared quite a bit and the flower which I’m most drawn to right now is the Crocus.
I find the colours so joyful, and at a time where everything else is so grey and we are all wishing for spring to arrive, I think they bring a little brightness.

New Gallery

For many years I have had my work in six galleries in the UK, but so far they have mostly been in the south. I was recently asked if I would show at a gallery in Ripley, just outside Harrogate in North Yorkshire and after a little visit decided immediately that it would be a lovely place to show. Ripley is a town right out of a Dickens novel and almost every house is a beautiful example of honey coloured stone and classical architecture. The gallery is called Chantry House, and is right in the centre, and easy to find. It is run by Emma Hargreaves.

The gallery can be found at:
