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.

Gives the frame its character and provides the perfect setting for an artwork to be fully enjoyed.

Adds depth to an image and works with the moulding to enhance and protect the artwork.
Bonds to the artwork ensuring it is perfectly smooth and holds the whole frame together.
We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
