International Contemporary Masters XII

Several of my works have been published in the latest edition of a book series: International Contemporary Masters. These books are then sent to galleries and museums around the world to spread the word of artists in their pages.

This book has just been delivered and I'm really happy with the works they've chosen to use to represent me. They show the subjects I'm most driven to paint and make me feel so passionate - portraiture, the nude form and hands.

CIRCLE Quarterly Art Review

One of my favourite canvases has been published in the CIRCLE Quarterly Art Review winter 2018 - Female Nude II, 2007. Go to page 75 opposite.

The purpose of this publication is: "we examine work by 108 mid-career and established artists working in a variety of discipline and style...In compiling this diverse curated selection we aim at creating a narrative through both the commonalities between the artworks, but also the dissimilarities between each practice and each approach...The beauty of art transpires from how unrestricted the artist is in creating content and how unconstrained the viewer is in contextualizing meaning."

One of my works has just appeared in Edinburgh - my artist friend Julie Easson and I went to the Opening Night. Plenty of art chat, wine, socialising with other artists and tasty Asian food!

A thank you to my neighbour Pauline for going along to the show and letting me use one of her photos here.

CIRCLE SPOTLIGHT - Issue 5                                            

My work has appeared in a magazine published in the last few days. I'm happy to say that they've selected one of my less promoted works - Female Nude I, 2005. In this canvas I was experimenting with texture. For the background I included soil from the garden to add a rough hue for me to then paint on. Beforehand I put the soil in the oven on high heat to kill any bacteria - of course I did, I mean, I'm a scientist!
