Exciting exhibition news to follow soon. In the meantime, it’s Artwalk month, so the studios will be open 31 May.

A small update

Completed one small painting this week (15 x15cm), and started another. Possibly they might make a pair: will have to wait and see how it turns out.

I’ve a couple of announcements to make soon, in the meantime I can confirm there will be open studios for Artwalk Wakefield – including the reopening of the Prince Albert.
