Well I don't know about you but this year seems to be just whizzing by so quickly. Can't quite believe that we're almost in May! Okay here goes with a real quick update at just what's been happening since my last post, and those of you that know me will know that the following will be in no particular order (just like the contents of my mind ;-)

Okay for starters - my latest original is now available:
'GLORY' - an African Cheetah

Limited edition prints of 'GLORY' should be available within the next two weeks.

During 'studio time' I'm as busy as ever, sketching out a jaguar close up at the moment, with a small snow leopard pastel waiting in the wings and two oil paintings in very early stages, plus adding to the 'rough copy' of the book I'm working on (so watch this space! ;-)

Latest originals to sell are 'SPLENDOUR' and 'AMUR LEOPARD' both going off to new loving homes - I hope that they bring many hours of pleasure to their new owners as they did for me whilst creating them.

During March I was invited over to Geneva, Switzerland by the art materials manufacturers Caran D'Ache. I had a wonderful time viewing the development processes of new products and getting to work alongside the head chemist in his laboratory for a day testing and sampling a new range of products that will be launched towards the end of this year! Exciting times ahead! It looks as though I'll be demonstrating for them during the summer next year! :-)

28th/29th May of this year will see the official opening of the Twycross Zoo Gallery! My workshops etc should be starting there soon after - I'm meeting with the gallery manager next Thursday to finalize details .............. more information on this coming soon ;-)

In June I'll be demonstrating at Patchings Art Festival again! And for anyone who loves arts and crafts this is an event not to be missed!!!

In August I'll be exhibiting at The Rutland Birdfair!
There really is something for everyone at this internationally renowned event! From art to photography to lectures by leading conservationists (Simon King OBE, Chris Packham, Nick Baker to name but a few) to great food and all things ornithological and more!!!

Okay last but definitely not least:

A quick reminder to say that my Summer Workshop (Sat 14th May) is now fully booked, sorry to those of you who missed out on a place this time. However there are four places left at the moment on the Autumn Workshop (Sat 13th Aug).

Okay I'll leave it at that for now as I have a pond to dig out! lol

So until next time take care & God bless
