I’ve been up late most nights finishing off new original paintings for an exhibition at my gallery in Thixendale.

I’ve been very busy gearing up for my Christmas exhibition, which runs at my gallery in Thixendale, North Yorkshire, between November 4th-26th.  This year I’m planning to show a new collection of paintings featuring wild creatures posed against a winter-white backdrop. Foxes diving into deep snow drifts, hares warming in the winter sun and a kingfisher perched on a frosted branch are just some of the new winter wildlife paintings I plan to show. Painted in my […]
