My forthcoming solo exhibition at The Unit London has now been confirmed for August, with the private view event held at the gallery on 18th August. The show will feature all new pieces, inspired by and referencing British artists from the 18th century including Joshua Reynolds and Sir Henry Raeburn.
Work for the show is building up in the studio and I can't wait to get some images on the new website pages. Here's a sneak peak of a detail from one of the brand new oils...

One of my paintings was recently hung in the main bar of The Groucho Club London. I was delighted to be asked to join the Groucho's art collection, alongside works by artists including Tracy Emin, Mark Wallinger and Antony Micallef. I'm also thinking this could be the ideal venue for the private view after party!
