I shall be exhibiting with Abbey Group in St Nicolas’ Church in the centre of Abingdon.. I shall have a selection of watercolours and pen and wash paintings. Along with the original work there will be a collection of prints of local scenes in the Abingdon area.
Originally from Scotland I was relocated by my employer to work in Wallingford in 2005. Ten years later I retired which was followed by a 12 months rest and recuperation in Venice, Italy. When in Venice I started attending drawing classes and the art workshops held at the Bottega del Tinteretto. My enthusiasm expanded and on return to Oxford became involved with Urban Sketchers Oxford which I now organise. I’m very keen on attending art courses and workshops both here and in Europe. Since I started exhibiting four years ago, my work and range of subject matter has developed and increased in popularity. Several of my pictures have be found in the USA. Understandably I use the opportunities when I travel to paint outside. So you will find a selection of landscapes and cityscapes amongst my paintings.
