Diving into the world of video to experiment with this medium as another means of bringing my work to you.
During a recent photo shoot with local photographer Lance Bellers, with Emmet Ray’s “I’ll See You in My Dreams” playing in the background, we became aware whilst flicking through the gallery on his camera that the images took on a sparkly, jewel-like quality. Aside from being a great way of showing many images in a short space of time, the flickering effect of the fast-paced slideshow seemed to temporarily transport us from that sunny room into a different dimension. Through its connection to the images, the music worked without pretension, hitting just the right rhythm and mood, and prompting jokes that we had stumbled upon a new art form.
As my preparations for this year’s festival draw to a close, and with only days left until I begin the process of hanging my paintings at 2 Knoyle Road, I bring you this sneak peek of my 2017 collection. In addition to the original acrylics on canvas, my range of cards will also be available at the Open House for the duration of the festival.
You can expect more media experimentation in the months to come, but for now please enjoy this first attempt, and I look forward to seeing many of you during at Knoyle Road.
After a wonderful first weekend at the house of John Mulligan who is not only extremely talented making wooden assemblages – but has an amazing eye for interior design, colour and curation. House and garden.

This couple came to see my work in a gallery last year, they had been following my work and seen a couple of my paintings in a friends home and were so appreciative, and resonated with a lot of my work, but they couldn’t find, or decide on ‘the one’ at that time – I remember saying, ‘Maybe I just haven’t painted it yet’, and this was right.
￼I knew, or had an inkling, as this painting emerged, that it may well be the one they decided to have.
It looks fantastic in their totally chic home. Which is a mixture of sleek contemporary lines, with amazing vintage finds and a very specific clear colour palette try that works with this pretty bold and raw painting –
I am still resting and processing the amazing madness of May – the month that is the most intense for artists in Brighton and Hove Uk.
It sometimes feels like a crazy helter-skelter of deadlines, followed by quietness but mostly I am so proud and happy from all the plans that came to fruition, the connections made and the new friends collectors supporters who flowed towards me, and the amazing artists I exhibited with – and the capacity for open minded appreciation of the Humans who made the effort to visit us in three different venues.
And the people who have come since to the studio to see the work; something I really enjoy – contact me firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a visit
I am so proud to have a painting included in this exhibition – especially since Brighton is my home town, and I grew up going to the open houses with my mum, Annie Robinson who happened to be the director of the friends of the Brighton festival for years.
My association with cake and art started around this time …..
