Welcome to my website. Here's what's happening now ...
Oxfordshire Mind Christmas Cards
Following the Derwent Art / Mind Sketchathon last October I have kept in touch with Oxfordshire Mind and I'm delighted to say they'll be using a selection of my sketches for their Christmas Cards this year.
The cards will be sold in packs of 10, two each of five designs, and should be available in early November from the Oxfordshire Mind website – oxfordshiremind.org.uk
If you don't do cards, maybe just take this opportunity to slip a few quid to a very good cause.
“At Oxfordshire Mind we firmly believe that everyone who has mental health difficulties should have somewhere to turn to for advice and support. We exist to make that happen.”
It was great to join in with Tom Croft's inspiring project, which is now an online exhibition by Google Arts and Culture in collaboration with Paintings in Hospitals. There are nearly 800 paintings and some fascinating commentaries. Visit the online exhibition HERE.
It's also available as a book published by Bloomsbury and due for release in mid November. You can read all about it and pre-order from Bloomsbury HERE or from Amazon or independent booksellers. All Royalties - a minimum of £2.50 per book - will go to NHS Charities Together.
Having started on 1st January 2018, this September I made my 1000th daily sketch, one of the 'some of my favourite films' collection. You can see all 1000 plus arranged by month by clicking HERE.
I am currently working on commissions and exploring more involved projects inspired by some of the subjects of the past three years.

Looking for something to do while you're stuck at home? Why not try doing a drawing a day? You'll probably have lots of ordinary things around the house which might be a good place to start. Click the image here for a pdf of some of my images to get you started.
While you're at it, please take the time to make a small donation to Oxfordshire Mind – they will be very glad of your donation which will help with the very valuable work they do, particularly in these difficult times. To visit my Just Giving page, click HERE.
