Exhibitions background Information : -
I like to exhibit regularly and welcome approaches from galleries anywhere in the UK.
When possible, I like to be on hand at my local exhibitions to meet up with clients and pass on and hear of news from fellow painters. It's a chance to share a few tips, consider tuition etc.
I contribute to exhibitions in Gloucestershire, Hertfordshire, Hampshire and London, where each year I contribute to the autumn exhibition of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) held at the Mall Galleries, The Mall, London, SW1 (near Admiralty Arch and Trafalgar Square). I have exhibited and sold regularly with both societies since 2000. At the ROI's 2011 exhibition from December 7th to 18th I was delighted to be the recipient of the Menena Joy Schwabe Memorial Award 2011 for an outstanding oil painting. Contributor ROI Exhibition, December 2012 and 2013.
Recently completed, and as yet unexhibited paintings are always on view at my home, where you are most welcome to call by appointment, see the Contact Me page for details.
On several occasions my work has been on display for sale at my home , and on two weekends, 10th and 11th May and 16th and 17th May 2015 I will be opening from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm for viewing and sale of my paintings.

Galleries that wish to exhibit my work are most welcome to approach me, so if you like my paintings and feel that it would suit your gallery and your clientele please get in touch via e-mail or telephone.
Commissions From Individuals
You may like a particular painting and want an original version, perhaps with changes to suit your own preference. Or if you see a painting in my Galleries sections that is now marked as sold I could recreate this for you again by request. Maybe you would like me to visit a particular place and portray that; or perhaps a surprise gift to a special person would be something to consider. I'd be pleased to discuss your requirements, as original paintings give such lasting pleasure.
We agree as much as possible about the work, including a deadline at the outset, and I keep you informed of progress. A non-refundable deposit of 30% typically secures the work.
With regret I am unable to accept payment via credit card, but accept pounds sterling cheques, cash or international money orders.
