This is the HACG autumn event, which features up to three original pieces from a selection of members across a diverse skill-set, including paintings, sculpture, prints and cards. I will be at the opening for part of the evening.

(Preview on 24th by ticket from the organisers; this year, I am not attending the evening event.)

This Exhibition is now in its seventh year and goes from strength to strength, raising money for local charity - this year the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice. 

St Joseph's College is a great venue, close to the town centre and has excellent free parking facilities. There are two large exhibition galleries filled with a huge variety of artworks to suit every pocket and taste, typically over 400 paintings on view together with a wide selection of ceramics and sculpture. There is also an Art Cafe and various Workshops being held. 

Tickets are on sale on the door or via the Hexagon Box Office 0118 960 6060. Admissions �5, concessions �3, accompanied children FREE. For more info and to contact organisers:

A sizeable collection of my work (and growing) is now available direct from their Studio website, with quick and easy processing of high resolution images, copyright cleared. Just follow the link.

The many-layered way that my journey towards better health has interwoven with the art that I produce is undeniable to me and, increasingly, something that I am prepared to talk about since each contributes relevance to the other. I go into this more on my website.

More times than I can say, I have finished a piece of art only to find that it delivers new understanding to me after the event, sometimes many months after the paint is dry. This is where the creative process has the potential to become a messenger from your SELF to YOURSELF; something I talk about a lot!

I recently received some extraordinary insight via my fascination with painting windows and this helped me to reach some profound conclusions regarding my health-journey.
