It’s showtime!

It’s showtime!

Thrilled to announce that Maidenheads most marvellous shop has offered to stock my drawings on a permanent basis. Queen of Cool Francesca Hennessy has loaned me a 180cm x 150cm expanse of wall in her beautiful boutique 'Two for Joy' and invited me to hang whichever portraits I think best.

“Worstest day of my life!” announces 7 year old taken on ‘adventure’ by parents

Easter Sunday dawned grey, cold and wet - the sort of weather for staying at the fireside, playing board games in your velour lounge suit .

A grueling 9 mile stretch of Dual Carriageway and open country was selected as the obvious choice.
