Despite all the stresses in recent times I did find success at the Found Gallery in Brecon where I enjoyed a great solo exhibition slotting nicely into a few weeks in between lockdowns. My thanks goes to Punch Maugham the Founder & owner for her kindness & support.
As ever sales continued to flow at The Harbour Lights Gallery, Porthgain who always have my paintings in their lovely Gallery & who have for many years encouraged me & supported me so another big thank you to Katy, Annie & Huw
It was very sad that I was unable to exhibit in the 2b Gallery, Cowbridge, due to lockdowns, but I comfort myself with the thought that so many others are much worse off than me & at least I’m fit & well ! Natalie Davies there however remains so kind & supportive
Fortunately I also enjoyed working on a number of commissions for people too who I think wanted to bring something into their homes that brought back memories of their favourite place along the coast
Above all however I want to thank you for all your support & interest in my work, for following my website, for buying my paintings & inviting me to your clubs & societies to talk to you…… so THANK YOU
As for the future well I’m very optimistic & have been developing new ideas & techniques in recent months. I am always inspired by the music of Martyn Joseph but recently found motivation from The Lighthouse Family’s song Ocean Drive, & the words “And the sky’s so blue, Suns gonna shine on everything you do” so look out for more bright blue colours in my sky’s this year !!
I’m deeply disappointed to say that as a result of latest developments with Covid 19 I’ve had to take the difficult decision to postpone the exhibition
I’ve worked so hard pulling together all the new work for the show & was looking forward to catching up with you once again.
That said the priority is quite rightly the safety of us all & that is what has finally brought me to this decision.
All of the paintings that would have been in the exhibition can however be seen on this website & are available to purchase. If you should particularly like one I can arrange Covid safe delivery with the option (without any obligation) for you to change your mind when you see the actual painting if it’s not exactly how you expected it to be.
In the meantime please stay safe, keep in touch & I hope to see you again very soon.
I’m really looking forward to regaining a little normality in what has been a very strange year by welcoming you & your friends to visit my upcoming Exhibition at Gallery 23b High Street, Cowbridge.
This Exhibition has been inspired by the words TEMPEST & TRANQUILITY FROM THE SAME SEA (a twist on the words of the great singer songwriter Martyn Joseph) and ‘THE SKY IS SO BLUE, THE SUN’S GONNA SHINE ON EVERYTHING YOU DO’ (Lighthouse Family).
The Gallery will be open:
Tuesday – Saturday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. (closed Monday)
Sunday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
It will feature 50 + original works plus a range of signed, limited edition prints featuring local views as well as scenes from further afield – something for everyone!
Here are just a few of the original paintings that will be available to view….
As part of the Found by The Sea Exhibition which is taking place at the wonderful Found Gallery in Brecon (14th July – 19th August) I am delighted to confirm that throughout the day on 28th July (11:00 – 16:00) I will be demonstrating my painting techniques & showing how some of the magic happens!
It is of course paramount that your visit will be not only enjoyable but above all safe so the Gallery has worked tirelessly to ensure that suitable social distancing precautions will be in place.
The Gallery is a wonderful space, full of light & character so I am very excited to see my work hanging there and hope that you enjoy it too!
I’m really excited to confirm that my one-man exhibition at the wonderful Found Gallery in Brecon is set to open 14 July and runs until 19th August.

I’m really looking forward to The Albany Gallery in Cardiff opening up their ‘virtual’ Summer Exhibition.
These are very strange & difficult times but as Miro once said:
” A simple line painted with the brush can lead to freedom and happiness”
I hope that you are all keeping healthy & safe with your family & friends and that you enjoy viewing my work on the Albany site as well as my own website and that it brings some freedom and happiness to you.
