    Studio Snippets – Paintings in progress this week

    Building up to the May festival and Artists Open Houses by resolving some of the paintings hanging around my home studio. I’ve yet to get to the seafront and give my gallery space the spring clean it deserves, ready to hang some new pieces. This won’t happen until the kids are back at school. There’s more paintings there that are missing the final details that bring a piece together.

  4. The First Drop of Spring

    The First Drop of Spring

    With much of the UK having been stricken with floods during early 2014, it may be hard to imagine summer in full-swing but the weather is on the upturn. Spring is here and its time to get out there!

    I’ve been getting more daring, even attempted a walk in the woods for an Easter egg hunt, but I’ve have been thinking what a battering the garden’s taken over the winter months.

  10. I attended On Saturday I (escaped domestic life and) went along to Gallery40 in the North Laines to celebrate the launch of ‘Brighton’s Artists,’ a book in which my work is listed. The coffee table book format is a first but I was originally featured in an early issue of Brighton’s Arty Magazine back in 2009.

    Arty Mag Summer 2009002 copy

    I feel proud to be part of this successful publication. I appreciate good design I must say this book is very well done, the selection and layout of artworks are Royal Academy Gallery gift shop quality, and I advise you to pick up a copy NOW before they run out Available here – http://www.artymagazines.com/ – and shops and galleries around town, while stocks last.

    Brighton’s Arty Magazine was dreamed up by Torben and Alison Krog. They applied 40 years’ of publishing experience to produce a magazine that celebrates the creative talents on their doorstep.

    About this book:

    Ten magazines, four directories, one charity art auction and a pop-up gallery later, we’re delighted to launch the very first book by Kemp Street Productions. And although it’s our names on the cover, we hope that everyone who bought into the concept will share our sense of ownership. Brighton’s Artists 2014 has only been possible due to the support and trust we have received from the tremendously talented creative community we live in. We think this may be the first publication of its kind. And there’s only one city that could have produced it. That’s Brighton & Hove.

    On the website  -

    In the Editions area you’ll find back issues of Brighton’s Arty Magazines and Directories since we first launched in 2009. The People section brings together many of the fabulous artists we have featured over the past four years. And in Places you’ll find a guide to the best galleries, arty hotels, shops and social spaces in and around Brighton and Hove.

    Order your copy – only £12.00 –  http://www.artymagazines.com/

    Galleries and shops are invited to stock the book on a sale or return basis.
