A busy Private View at the RWA Drawn 2015

We decided to 'pop' down to Bristol last night for the Private View of Drawn 2015 and Drawing On: The Ingram Collection of Modern British and Contemporary Art at the Royal West of England Academy. The M6 is not the best place to be on a Friday afternoon but we were glad we made the effort! Great to see lots of people filling the gallery and so many different approaches to drawing both traditional and contemporary.

Chatting to Evie Williams from the Quercus Gallery in Bath, where I will be having a solo show in October.

Flowers for Columbia Road

I originally made some wildflower and plant drawing/paintings about 5 or 6 years ago and have since done more as commissions. As I have work at the Columbia Road Gallery next to the Flower Market I thought it would be nice to make some to exhibit there. Here are some of the ones we delivered on Sunday.
