    Exhibition at Dore Abbey, Herefordshire 19-25 July  -   16/07/2015

    I will be exhibiting a series of paintings based on the piece 'In Honour of the City' by George Dyson. This work was composed in 1928 and is being performed at the English Choral Experience course in Dore Abbey, conducted by Paul Spicer. The course and the associated Arts Festival run from 19-25 July. Please click on the link below for more information. I will be at the course during both weekends. The photo (above) shows nine out of the fourteen new works that I have created for this exhibition.

    20:20 exhibition  -   11/01/2015

    Our first group exhibition of 2015 opened at Chelsea College of Arts 'SUARTS' space on 8 January. The title '20:20' arose because each of us (36 first year students) submitted one piece of artwork, measuring 20x20cm. My piece (pictured), acrylic on canvas, incorporated themes of waste, over-packaging, over-fishing and pollution of the seas, and included a citrus fruit plastic net and a chocolate wrapper. The exhibition, accessed through the refectory in the main Chelsea College building, is open until 7.45pm on Friday 16 January.

    Art degree at Wimbledon  -   16/09/2014

    I have been accepted on the M.F.A. course (Master of Fine Arts) at Wimbledon College of Arts, starting at the end of September, 2014. This will be a two year extended full-time taught course. I am hugely looking forward to being able to push at doors, extend my boundaries and work collaboratively with post-graduate art students from all over the world. I don't know where this will all lead, but watch this space...!

    'Messiaen and Synaesthesia'  -   12/09/2014

    The film that I made in January 2008 is still up on the website of the Philharmonia Orchestra and is now also on YouTube. Lasting about 5 minutes, it is introduced by Peter Hill, Messiaen's biographer. To see the film, click on the link below. The October podcast, of which the film forms the latter part, also features interviews with Sir Charles Mackerras and George Benjamin.

    Open Studio - update on funds raised  -   18/07/2014

    The sun shone on a wonderful two days of friends, music, cakes and art! Huge thanks go to all my helpers and to everyone that managed to make the trek to SE5. The sum raised for charities from painting sales and cash donations was over £3,000. I have divided this between the following charities: Compassion in World Farming, WaterAid, Whitehall Choir, Project Harar, The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and Charities Aid Foundation.
