Wells Art Contemporary
I am very pleased to report that I have had work accepted for WAC 2021 (Wells Art Contemporary 2021) which opens 28th August at Wells Cathedral. The exhibition coincides with the installation of a new Anthony Gormley that will be exhibited on the West Front of the Cathedral. The work I have had selected is a break from my usual subject matter and comes from a whole new series of work inspired by walking the fields close to home over the last few months. The exhibition is also available online please visit www.wellsartcontemporary.co.uk

Head in the Clouds
Some of you may remember the exhibition of graphite on tracing paper I did in 2019. I have been planning another version of this for sometime. I am currently working on an application to Arts Council England to hold 2 exhibitions in 2022. This is an involved process and by no means guaranteed but it is good to working towards this after having to put it on hold for so long.
