2019 Exhibitions and shows will be listed here in due course.
FEBRUARY: 8th to 12th February 2019. John Hughes Arts Festival, Jesus College, Cambridge. I supplied a “Secret Postcard” for the charity fund-raiser. The festival was set up by a group of students to commemorate the life and spirit of John Hughes, Jesus College’s Dean of Chapel, who tragically died in a car accident in 2014. This is my little postcard:

1. Wednesday 8th May 2019, 10.00am to 4.00pm. I am doing a watercolour workshop. The main exhibition title is “Spring into Summer”—My one-day workshop, entitled “Spring Flowers and Little Dewdrops”, complements this theme by encouraging students to carefully observe, draw, and then paint a wild spring flower, with perhaps a little, elegantly placed, dewdrop. There are twelve places available.

It is wonderful that one of my paintings has been chosen to decorate the poster and publicity literature (see below): Marsh Marigold.
