Autumn 2015: Like last year, I have donated a piece to the Richmond Environment Trust which will be auctioned on 26th of November at York House, Clarendon Hall, Richmond Road, Twickenham, TW1 3AA. The Annual Art Auction is the Trust’s major fundraising event, with donated works from local artists to Royal Academicians. All profits will go to the Trust, supporting current projects including The Story of our Streets, encouraging children and young people to understand more about the history of their local area and Active Environment, enabling adults with disabilities to discover and enjoy local places of interest.

Auctioneer: fine art dealer John Iddon. The auction starts at 8.00pm with viewing from 6.30pm; Tickets: £10 via Richmond Environment Trust; Email:

Several commissions have kept me painting whilst the days are shortening. Projects include paintings of Italian cooking ingredients against a whitewashed wall, a pair of small paintings of figs and nectarines, a painting of lemons, figs, walnuts and a Delft blue plate, and a painting of two bluetit birds. I’m preparing sketches for additional commissions.

After a successful July exhibition at Harris+Hoole in Fulham Reach on the Thames riverside, we have scheduled another exhibition for the 12th of December. This will be a great opportunity for the locals to buy original and unique Christmas gifts: paintings, giclees and art cards. Gift vouchers will also be available. I’m currently designing the exhibition poster. Preview of works to follow soon.
