My art career began many years ago and I have successfully exhibited in London and other prestigious exhibitions:
A Fine Art Show at Temple Grove opened by the Marquess of Abergavenny
The New Sussex Artists & Photographers Exhibition, the Pavilion, Brighton in 1989 and 1990
The Autumn Art Show (AAS), patrons Dame Vera Lynn LLD, Tim Renton MP, The Marquess of Abergavenny KG OBE and Mrs Hans
Rausing in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1994, 1995
The Pastel Society, The Mall, London in 1982
The Fine Art Exhibition, Michelham priory opened by Dame Vera Lynn LLD, in 1990.
I was also invited to submit by Joan Hadfield, a fellow of the Society of Woman Artists (SWA), Westminster Central Hall, patron HRH Princess Michael of Kent, and successfully exhibited in 1991, 1992, 1993 and 1994.
I have also sold many paintings, which are now in private collections: these include many commissioned portraits.
A few new works are shown here for example "Music" and "Football a Game of Two Halves", which were created mostly using Gimp software. The new medium is staggeringly beautiful and creates works that can be printed as digital art works, which have many outstanding attributes. You maybe aware of oil paintings by Rembrandt, Constable and many others that require restoration, due to darkening and cracking. These new high quality pigment print techniques produce works that have none of these problems and have superb light fastness, which means they will not fade and will be just as beautiful in 75 years time.
