It's Fishy Friday

Over the past year those of you who follow my blog will notice that fish have been featuring heavily in the artwork I have been creating. The main reason for this is that I  have been working towards a big solo show which I will be having in London in June 2015 entitled 'The Life Aquatic' at The Rebecca Hossack Gallery, Charlotte Street, London . During my research, which has included visits to Aquariums, fishing museums, fish restaurants and fish shops I came across a fantastic shop in Brighton called O'Fishly Healthy. I was fortunate to meet the owners Kelly and Mark which resulted in them letting me use their window as a gallery for a few weeks. The work will be on display until the end of October 2014 so if you happen to be in Brighton do pop in and have a look, and while you are there get yourselves a nice piece of fish for your supper.

Artwave 2014 at Berkeley House, Lewes

Next week sees the opening of Artwave 2014 where I will be taking part and exhibiting at Berkeley House as part of the Artwave open house trail. The house itself is a Grade II listed 1820's Regency house in the centre of the county of Lewes. The beautiful building has been refurbished to provide first class accommodation. For more info go to The exhibition runs from August 23rd until September 7th 11am-5pm. Here is a new piece I have created especially for the exhibition. 'A room of one's own' seemed to be the perfect book title for Berkeley House considering it is a B&B after all.
