Painting now in my new studio in Hoveton, plenty of space and light. Taken on a commission today of a Norwich landmark.. Went to the annual AGM and 'summer bash' of the Norwich Contemporary Art Society on Sunday in North Norfolk.

Delighted to be collecting the keys to a new studio space this week in the midst of the Norfolk Broads.

June 2015
I've been down to Cornwall, managed sketch whilst hiking and sailing around the Camel Estuary. Glorious flowers on the cliffs and footpaths.

Joined a coach trip with the Norfolk Contemporary Arts society to Wakefield and Bradford. I loved Hockney's new Ipad work on display at Saltaire, huge slabs of colour depicting Yorkshire lanes in their springtime finery.

May 2015
I've been away at West Dean College during May working with Mark Cazelat on Colour. Great course, wonderful place to work, inspiring tuition, delicious food. Sat in a field of cowslips figuring out just how yellow can I make a painting.

I'm working on a book of spring sketches at the moment. Torn between time in the studio or time in the garden/potting shed/greenhouse/garden I decided to combine it all.

Painting in the greenhouses at Holkham Hall walled garden a few years back, during a two year artist residency there.
