Happy New Year to one and all, I hope you had a fine festive season and are now ready to let rip and take 2020 by storm ! After a busy 2019, ending with the fantastic solo show at Hidden Gallery which was AMAZING…. lots of wonderful people came to view, Poppy & Daisy at the Gallery were super supportive and I have to say I ended the year on a high.

So whats planned for 2020 ??? Well funnily enough quite a lot :O) Never a dull moment. I have just spent the last 2 days hanging my paintings at Alchemy 198, a most wonderful drinking establishment on the Gloucester Rd where I live in addition to filling the windows of Room 212 with more of my paintings and samples of Red Dog glass. For those that are wondering what Red Dog Glass Design is, take a look at the website.

Do pop into Alchemy 198 if you are passing and browse the artwork, my work fills the top bar and the wine is to be recommended :O)

So a few things in the pipeline, I’m waiting to hear from The Other Art Fair (Saatchi) if I have been accepted to the Trumans Brewery Art Fair in March. Some of you may remember I took part in this last year and it was amazing. Probably near to 17,000 people through the doors over 4 days. Fingers crossed they accept me, if they do I shall let you all know and free passes will be available to you all :O)

I have just submitted an Arts Council Grant application to do some experimental art using Augmented Reality. I will be working with 2 digital experts and myself of course the painter. What is super exciting is that we have secured some amazing venues to exhibit the final painting including 4 galleries, an arts centre, Bristol Aquarium & ‘We the Curious’ (The science museum in Bristol) so…… we should hear at the end of January if we have been successful with funding, then hopefully it will be all systems go. I will keep you posted on progress.

I have something very exciting planned for August this year but Ill tell you all about that in the next update.

Tootle pip for now and Happy 2020 everyone.
