News – Upcoming Art Show

I’m really pleased to be taking part in the forthcoming art show at Belle Vue Park in Newport. I am putting together some new artwork for the show, and hope to have previews here very soon.

The show is taking place on Sunday 16th September, at the Belle Vue pavillion in the park. The show will be open between 10:00am and 3:00pm, and there is an excellent coffee shop on site too.

Come and see us!

A New Beginning.

Hello! Welcome to my gallery.

Many years ago I dreamed of becoming an artist. Then, life happened. To cut a long story short, I became too ill to follow my dreams, and the course of my illnesses left me with cataracts. I became ‘legally blind’. There were times when I thought I would never draw or paint again.

Ten years on, and two cataract operations later, I am back at my drawing board. I am not completely recovered, and I still have to pace myself, but who doesn’t?

It’s been a long time since I was able to take my artwork seriously. I’ve forgotten a lot, and I have changed, so no doubt my art style has also changed. One thing I know for certain – my years of not being able to create art left me more determined than ever to make something of my skills.

So join me on this incredible journey as I rediscover who I am, and explore anew the joy of creativity.
