'Old Oaks, Rougham' plein air sketch, 30 x 40 cms oil on board.  A peaceful afternoon spent painting outside in the sunny and blustery weather.

'Poppy Dazzler', another oil sketch capturing the astonishing sight of wild flowers and poppies in a meadow during blazing June.

Both works are available and can be framed to order.

Having moved to Lewes in East Sussex last year, I am seeking out like minded - or not! - new arty friends. This area is so rich with wonderful galleries and artistic locations (of which Charleston Farmhouse with its Bloomsbury group is the outstanding local example) that I am finding inspiration everywhere.

I was delighted to be offered a Guest Artist slot at the lovely Chalk Gallery in Lewes shortly after arriving here.  This was a great experience which I would like to repeat.

My new studio is a fabulous, light filled attic room with views over the Downs.  I spend much time here colour...
