Welcome to the annual exhibition of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. The show is now open and runs to the 19th of May.

Stop by and check out my portrait of Michael Harding, colour chef and maker of handmade artists oil paints. A big thank you to Michael.

Thanks to Degree Art for the fantastic Portrait 16 show and private view last night. Lots of friendly faces and summer wine to go with the mix of portraits on show.
A new chapter has begun...I have very recently been accepted as an associate member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. This is a big one for me as the institution has over 200 years of promoting the arts and its members work. Excited to be part of this group of very fine artists and look forward to finding my place within the Society. Much more news to come!
Now showing six pics in the Candidates Exhibition along with 14 other artists at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists gallery. Exciting times as all artists have put their best foot forward in hopes of becoming an associate member in the long established arts society which is over 200 years young and still moving and shaking. A big thank you is due to my two RBSA sponsors Robert Neil and Simon Davis for helping me get this far.
Just got some good news....my entry for this years BP Portrait Award has just cleared the first major hurdle before selection into this years show opening in June.

What a wonderful evening at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists gallery. Still mulling over some of the very fine portraits as well as the friendly conversations with fellow artists. Great show, great orginization...Thank you RBSA and judges for highly commending my portrait 'Winter'.
