PINTER AT THE PINTER, September 2018 - February 2019

Twelve years since it was painted, and ten years since last exhibited, my portrait of the late Nobel Prize-winning playwright Harold Pinter is being exhibited once again this autumn. Worked on from sittings at Harold's home in 2006, two years before he died, the portrait will be exhibited at The Harold Pinter Theatre in London for the duration of a season of Pinter's short plays, 'PINTER AT THE PINTER'. The exhibition will run for 6 months from 6th September until mid- February. Two other works in oil are also on show.

The pastel portrait was Harold's personal favourite and was chosen by Lady Antonia Fraser, Harold's widow, to be on the Order of Service at his funeral in 2009. The producers of Pinter At The Pinter commissioned me to write a personal account of how I came to paint Harold Pinter before he died, which Lady Antonia Fraser has called 'moving and funny'. It will be published in a limited-print-run book as part of the season. 


 

ARTISTS AT HOME June 2018

Thank you to everyone who came to my home to see what I do. I met so many lovely new people, sold lots of pictures, discussed lots of commissions, and had a thoroughly good weekend, connecting with the local community and talking about my work.

Already looking forward to next year!

ARTIST'S RESIDENCY - Johnsons Island Artists, Brentford, 2017-2018

I had a wonderful few months over the winter of 2017-2018 being Artist in Residence at the extraordinary pocket-sized island of artists and creators located where the River meets the Canal. I painted a series of works in pastel and oil looking at the landscapes of Docks, Locks, Weir, and ramshackle island life.
