I am always happy to host one-to-one art mentoring sessions and workshops in my own studio where you get my undivided attention (plus coffee/tea and biccies!).
Oil painting (or any other medium) for beginners, including basic colour knowledge, or perspective drawing would be a suggested place to start if you are embarking your creative journey. For those already painting, how about the idea of pushing your medium in unexpected directions by using and incorporating unusual materials...? How would you like to explore spontaneous, random and unpredictable mark-making as a way of generating ideas?
I can tailor the mentoring to suit your level of expertise and the sessions can take any direction according to your requirements.
Fees are currently £15 p hour and sessions can be as long as you wish, available 7 days a week.
Contact me for more details and to discuss what you might want to bring along.
Details of future workshops, talks and demos held at various venues will be posted here

Stefania Carrozzini Gallery is pleased to present in Venice “La Nature speaks to us/ La natura ci parla” a group exhibition created and curated by Stefania Carrozzini. A first edition of the exhibition was presented in July 2023 in Paris, at Sylvia Rielle Space in Place des Vosges.
This innovative exhibition gathers the work of eleven artists hailing from countries across the world including United States, Norway, Germany, Sweden, England, Italy. Their work features photography, painting and sculptures. These various interpretations of the artists gestures toward different dimensions reach beyond their existential realities, as subjective perspectives implicate an aesthetic of the Nature.
Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 October 9.30 - 4pm
I will be showing several new pieces as well as old favourites.

The 205th art exhibition by members of the Norfolk & Norwich Art Circle is at the Memorial Pavilion, South Creake. I have six selected pieces on show in this show which features some of the best work showcasing the group.
Visit www.nnartcircle.com for information about the group and how to become involved.
Members of the EAST22 COLLECTIVE are showing new work in this large space, responding to the theme of HIDDEN. I will be showing an installation triptych consisting of two large paintings and a map drawn on a wooden panel found on location, based on a 19th century OS map. The theme of my piece is to illustrate the erosion of the cliffs at COVEHITHE on the North Suffolk Coast, showing the receding coastline over the last 150 years and projecting the expected line of cliffs in the next 50 years, where the entire village and church will be lost to the sea.
Watch this space for more details.
My painting - accepted for this show - called "4 August 1577" relates to the folklore surrounding the dramatic and tragic appearance of Black Shuck as he terrorised the cowering congregation at St Mary's Church, Bungay as they hid from the terrible storm raging outside on that fateful evening in 1577.
