Welcome to my Blog

I am pleased to welcome you to my blog and though I am a complete novice when it comes to blogging I am excited by the possibilities it presents and look forward to showing you my work, the work that some of my students produce and to answering any questions you may have about aspects of the work, techniques used or just discussing painting and drawing.

Coach Trip To 'It's All About Art Show'

I have provisionally booked a coach with Kardan for a trip up to the SAA's 'It's All About Art' Show on Thursday July 24th the cost will be £26 per person which includes the return ferry fare and coach of course, but does not include the entry to the show, however I can pre-order tickets on your behalf. The show entry ticket costs will be £10 per person which still means that the trip will only cost £36 in total. The coach is a 48 seater and I will need a minimum of 40 people to be able to run this one at £26, should we get more than 40 a small refund may be possible.
There will be a great deal to see and do at the show and for more details about the show have a look at the web site  www.saa.co.uk If you have never been, it is fascinating day out and many extremely good bargains can be bought.
If you would definitely like to go let me know and I will put your name down immediately, I must have it filled by June 1st or I will have to cancel.

The coach will pick up at Coppins Bridge Car Park in Newport at 07.15 to get the 08.00 ferry from Fishbourne, these will be the only two pick up points so that we only need the one driver (time constraints). 

For those of you who have never been there are ample opportunities to watch many live demonstrations and even to participate. There are art materials everywhere you look at bargain prices and the chance to talk to many specialist manufacturers and artists.

Places are obviously limited, if you can let me know ASAP I'll put you on my list and places will be on a first come first serve basis. I will be doing two 45 minute demonstrations in 'Artisan' oils and of course would love to see you on the day!
Very Best Wishes,
