Affordable Art Fair. 8-11 July.

Some of my framed and mounted artworks will be on show this week at the Affordable Art Fair, Battersea, London, 8-11 July. You’ll find my pictures at Stand F2 where The Art Buyer gallery will be exhibiting my images alongside lots of other beautiful paintings, prints and ceramics. I’m also looking forward to teaching another Botanical Photography Workshop at West Dean College, Sussex on 23-25 July.

Spring Shows 2021

Spring Shows. May 2021.

There are two more spring shows this May where my work will be on display. The Dulwich Festival Artists’ Open House, May 7-16, will mainly be a virtual festival, but artists are able to arrange private, socially-distanced viewings, which is what I will be doing. If you’d like to visit me at my home studio in East Dulwich in the afternoon on either weekend, please contact me to arrange a time. I’ll have framed artwork in all sizes, mounted prints and boxes of new work to see. I’ll also be exhibiting my work, and be there in person, at the Super Nature Art Fair at the Garden Museum, May 21-23. There’s more information about this event at The Garden Museum’s website.

March 2021

Spring exhibitions. March 2021.

With the end of lockdown now in sight, I’m pleased to provide some details on some upcoming shows. The Art Buyer Online Spring Show is on from 10-31 March. Four of my new photographs will be part of a show featuring 19 UK artists with 75 artworks on display including photography, painting, ceramics and textiles. Included is this plant study used on the poster, Tulipa 4. Gas Gallery will also have some of my new work in theirs spring show starting on 19 March. After that, there should be shows in April and May so I’ll provide details as soon as there is confirmation.

Autumn Studies. November 2020.

Autumn Studies. November 2020.

This month there are a number of new autumn plant studies on sale. You’ll find them in the Prints for Sale and #artistsupportpledge pages. Here is one of the first: Vitis 2. This is a grape vine which I planted about fifteen years and, at this time of year, it produces a wonderful range of autumn leaf colours. Here, I was drawn to the beautiful yellows which come as the stronger colours fade just before the leaves fall.

Hampton Court 07.19

Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival. July 2019.

I currently have a stand at the Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival where, on Stand 945 in the Country Living Pavilion, I’ll have lots of framed, mounted and unframed prints on display in all sizes from A4 up to 30″x40″. There will be, for the first time, three unglazed tray framed prints including a new print, Mixed Hellebores 1. The show is on from 1-7 July. Details here.

V&A 3.18

Botanical Photography Workshop at the V&A. March 2018.

In May, I will be leading a two day botanical photography workshop. It’s a two day practical workshop on 18-19 May in the Victoria and Albert Museum in Kensington, London. I had the pleasure earlier in the year of going to the V&A’s prints and drawings room to do some research on how plants have been represented in photography, illustration and painting over the years. I was able to see, firsthand, the work of so many sources of inspiration and it will be great to see the students’ reaction to some of the folios of work which I’ll be selecting. If you’re interested in attending the course please email me with any questions or here are the details on the V&A’s website: https://www.vam.ac.uk/event/6VZkBdQ8/botanical-photography-may-2018
