February in the Studio: newsletter
Welcome to my February 2018 newsletter. I hope you’ve had a great start to the year! I’ve finally found some time to write this much-needed newsletter, being happily snowed under in painting work.
I’m currently completing three large and small commissioned paintings of fruits and flowers, which have been great and very interesting to work on. I’m also getting ready for five upcoming exhibitions – within the space of four months this a record number for me (and perhaps a bit too ambitious!):
- Surrey Art Fair, Esher, 23-25 February
- Affordable Art Fair with Otomys Gallery, Battersea London, 8-11 March
- Royal Society of British Artists (RBA), Mall Galleries London, 21-31 March
- Spring Exhibition, Aubergine Art Gallery, Wimbledon, PV 23 March
- Reading Art Fair, Reading, 20-22 April
Tickets to the Private Views of the Surrey Art Fair (23 February), Affordable Art Fair (7 March) and RBA Mall Galleries (20 March) as well as daytime tickets, are now available. These can be requested here or via email.
Tulips, tulips, tulips
This year is the first time I’ll be exhibiting tulip paintings; 7 tulips will be on show at the Mall Galleries, Surrey Art Fair and Aubergine Art Gallery. There really is no option for me not to paint tulips, being a Dutch painter!
I’m happy with the initial result- a small parrot tulip was accepted by the RBA for exhibition at the Mall Galleries a couple of weeks after it was painted. Below are images of large and small tulip paintings in progress; these will be available at the Surrey Art Fair and Aubergine Art Gallery.
All parrot tulips from Moyses Stevens, Pavilion Road, Chelsea.
Partnership with Otomys Gallery
I’m pleased to be working with Otomys Gallery, who will show four of my paintings at the Affordable Art Fair this March (tickets can be requested here or via email). A gallery established in Melbourne, they have just opened a gallery in Tetbury (Gloucestershire, England). If you’re in the area, be sure to visit this friendly space!

Until next time,
