Prints Available Online

‘Animal Farm’, 2013

After experimenting with a few outlets, I have finally found a way to sell open and limited edition prints directly from my website. Unframed open edition prints of my work are now available to order through certain pages on my website and are fulfilled by theprintspace.co.uk in London. High quality Giclee (for Painting and Digital Painting) or C-Type (for Photography) prints of my work are available in different sizes.

‘Estuary of the River Tâf’, 2016

Prints are currently available on the Fine Art PaintingFine Art Photography and Digital Painting pages. Look out for the ‘BUY ART PRINT’ box which should pop up in the bottom right corner of the screen. I have added a 15mm border to each print so that it will be easier to mount and frame an image should you wish to do so.

‘Double Rainbow Over Letchworth’, 2014

I am in the process of uploading further images in addition to the ones available now, so check back regularly to see what is new.

An exhibition exploring the radical side of the Garden City

After last nights fantastic opening party, (thanks to all who attended!) the Alternative Letchworth exhibition run officially starts Saturday December 3rd, 2016 until Sunday February 19th, 2017.

‘Alternative Letchworth brings together a variety of unique objects from the Garden City Collection including photographs, costumes, texts and other items, alongside new, specially commissioned works by four local artists; Sean Pearce, Richard Seaholme, Chantelle Stephenson and John Vincent. Each have produced works of art interpreting the idea of the alternative Garden City, exploring the links between their own experience and the little known past of their hometown. An essay by local writer Jane Fae accompanies the exhibition.’

Letchworth Garden City Commission

I have been commissioned by the Broadway Gallery in Letchworth Garden City to create a new video work for an upcoming exhibition about the unconventional history of Letchworth Garden City.

Working in collaboration with the gallery and the Garden Cities Collection I have completed the research phase and I am now in to the production phase of the project. I am currently developing an experimental short film inspired by the activities of four characters from the early 1900’s.

The work, along with four other selected artists, is scheduled to be exhibited in December-January 2016/17. You can see snippets of the project research and development at my new Instagram account with a more detailed post to follow…

I will also be posting ad hoc illustration (mainly sci-fi) drawing and digital painting via three flavours of social media: Ello, Twitter and Facebook.

I have been working hard to bring my sketching and concept art skills up to a high standard so you may also find some of that appearing there too. Please do follow and – if it pleases you – like and share.
