I have been very busy preparing for my solo exhibition at the Grand View Hotel in Cleveland – sixty- two works in all. It will be a strange thing to see so many works all together for a change.

Some of the new work that will be on show includes my series of pastel works on textured paper. I find it so exciting to prepare papers with texture marks, decide on some basic underpainting colours, and then create the work over this surface.

A few examples:

Gulf 29w by 39h cms



Moonlight Walk 1 paper with the texture medium applied

Moonlight Walk 2 – Art Spectrum ink applied over the surface

Moonlight Walk 25w by 29h cms
