Proudly supporting the charity Environment Trust, Richmond

Mayfair Christmas market (Mayfair, London), hosted by Novikov Restaurant, a great success. Fantastic atmosphere!
Currently working on two culinary painting commissions in time for Christmas.
About to set up the still life painting workshops for the new year (early 2017).

In between exhibitions and commissions, I work with artisan food producers to paint their produce, helping to conserve culinary heritage and celebrating good, local food. Press / food producers, please get in touch via the info below or via the contact page.

As part of this project, I have collaborated with the BBC Food and Farming Awards to profile finalists and bring out the best of their business, on wood panel. One of the paintings can be seen here, for the recent blog post see here.
