'Concrete Nature'

Stamford Arts Centre, Lincolnshire



15th - 21st November 2015


This exhibition is planned to coincide with the annual symposium of New Networks for Naturethree days when scientists, writers, ecologists, poets, artists, filmmakers, and others who have a significant interest in the natural world, all meet at this venue and socialise in the gallery. 


I have had three paintings selected for this exhbition, all from my Urban Bird series.  If you can make it to Stamford you will see squabbling crows, a wild collared dove finding sanctuary in a pigeon loft and chattering magpies livening up an urban park.

Rutland Water Nature Reserve, Egleton, Rutland LE15 8BT


Billed as 'the birdwatcher's Glastonbury' this is the place to be if you have an interest in wildlife.  Promoted by Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust and the RSPB this is the place to get up to date with the lastest conservation projects or meet some of the hosts of your favourite nature programmes.

Talks and Demonstrations


Gave a talk about my work and a demonstration of stencilling to Evesham Arts Society.

It was a pleasure to describe my inspiration and the techniques I use to such an enthusiastic and well informed audience.

Thank you!

Please get in touch if you'd like me to come and talk to your Arts Society......

I've just been invited to exhibit some work in the Netherlands at Oog Voor Natuur Gallery.  So a few cranes, swallows and magpies have winged their way over the North Sea for a while.
