  • Under the Skin of a Lemon Sky

    4 to 15 September 2019

    There are secret depths glowing within the hearts of our daily lives. A beachcomber makes his lonely pilgrimage through the fire of the dying day. A woman floats over the lunar surface of a gasholder. Scratched lines suggest electic pylons, mid-march . We share with you our particular view.

  • Impressions of a Misty Beech Glade

    26 to 30 June 2019

    My paintings are semi-abstract expressions of a particular solitary space on Hampstead Heath, exploring the quiet, still and meditative atmosphere of the glade on a beautiful misty day.
