I would just like to say a very big thank you to everyone who made it to my Private View at the Foundry on 23 March 23!

When you show alone it's both exciting and nerve racking.





This month and May are all busy


My solo show 'How do I make you feel?' continues at the Foundry until the 31st of May,


Open 8.30am - 6pm weekdays

17 Oval Way, SE11 5RR

Nearest tube Vauxhall


With 25 paintings and 50 photographic works, including brand new portraits never seen in public before, for example Sue Elsegood's (Left), as well as other activists who are trying to make the world a better place. 




On the right is the portrait of Baroness Jane Campbell. She is one of the few disabled representatives in the House of Lords.


This painting is a large acrylic on canvas, size 1.20 x 1 metre.



If you would like to meet me when you visit the exhibition, please drop me an email and I’ll do my best to meet up with you.


A reminder to all...


I am not 60 yet, just a few days to go, but I am taking this year to reflect on my artistic practice and enjoy and share my creations which involve my colourful portrait painting, alongside the video collages, photographs and montages as well as performance and poetry. 




The group exhibition Being Present


continues until 13 May 2023






Myself and Chris Lewis-Jones  will be performing our piece ‘The Great British Tea Break’ again on the 28th of April 2:20pm and 3:20pm. 


So join us for some Friday afternoon fun. It's free!

The workshop follows experimental practice and looks at new ways to use drawing, to have fun and come together in a safe space.
