From the 1st - 16th June I will be taking part in this years Surrey Artist Open Studios where I will be displaying a new series of artworks for the first time! My studio will be open every Saturday and Sunday 11am - 5pm and on Thursday evenings 6pm - 8.30pm between the 1st - 16th June 2019.
Come and see my work on display in Dorking this week at Denbies Wine Estate !
“Denbies held its first Bacchus Award Competition in 2003 and continues to be the highlight of the art gallery located on the first floor. The exhibition is then opened for one week to the public, who are also given the opportunity to choose their favourite piece.”
Leyden Gallery's forthcoming exhibition Platform for Emerging Arts #13 is a mixed media exhibition that promises a dynamic display from six talented emerging artists in one of East London's most vibrant art spaces.
Responding to a call-out for emerging art, each of the six artists has been selected for their promise and skill by curators Adriana Cerne & Lindsay Moran. Leyden Gallery has shown its astute judgment in recognising emerging talent, as their perception in the past has produced artists who have gone on to both critical acclaim and commercial success.
With the development of each of Leyden Gallery’s Platform shows there is a fabulous opportunity for the public to both see and buy art from emerging artists at a critical early stage of their careers.

The Rise, The Fall
"Nothing is static, everything is evolving, everything is falling apart." - Chuck Palahniuk

"The individual pieces slot perfectly into alignment, creating a continual liner whole. The outer most points bordering the exterior of the surfaces plane like the limits of perceivable space. Each segment a fixed moment in the chain.
It is often the things that people take for granted, which turn out to be the most valuable blessings in their lives. We are all hear for just a moment, soon to be history.
Time is the only true currency of the Earth, and it is our choice how we spend it." - Anna Louise Cox
