Digswell Arts Studio Open Day & A Final Appearance
I will have a couple of paintings in a show opening this Saturday 11th June that will most likely be my last appearance (of artwork) at the Fenners Project Space. After 4 years as a Fellow of Digswell Arts – 5 if you include assisting in the renovation of the building! – I will be leaving the trust. It has been a decision based largely on a change in my practice with my official leaving date at the end of July.
But before that happens, there will be various activities taking place at the Open Day so please do come along on Saturday! More details…
As one of the first artists to have had a studio at Fenners under the Digswell Arts trust, I have seen the transformation of a light industrial building into an artist studio and gallery space, met some interesting people and made great advances in my practice over the time I have been there. Before I talk about the future, here are images and links to some of the highlights of the Fellowship…

With a change of focus toward digital activities (encompassing painting, photography and video) I have a number of projects coming up including a music video and a short film (both in pre-production!). I have also expanded my experience and capabilities within illustration and design, in particular web and graphic design. In the long term, I am planning a show for late 2017 – details to be confirmed..
I can still be contacted via email for enquiries regarding sales, projects/collaborations or commissions – painting/illustration, photography or web based.
