I have returned to my most preferred medium, watercolour. Linking my work with my experiences as a soldier in the cold war to the present day centenary memorials of World War 1 and the use of the poppy symbol.

Solo Exhibition

Now secured my solo exhibition at the Burslem School of Art, Stoke on Trent for the whole of November.

The Centenary of WW1 and finding out that I had a Great Uncle killed at the Somme in 1918, and being named after him has highlighted to me the idea of the poppy not only as a wild flower but as an image of remembrance.

I reverted to my favourite medium, watercolour with the average size being 8x10 on paper in white frames.

 The Burslem School of Art has given me the the opportunity for a solo exhibition in November and would love to take the exhibition to other galleries. Im pleased to say the National Arboretum has accepted one of the paintings for display.
