I know, it’s been far too long since I last updated, but it’s been a strange few months. I was exhausted after my exhibitions and therefore spent much of the summer in the garden, hardly painting at all.

I also got to meet Jean Michel O’Shea a couple of weeks ago. Jean Michel has undertaken a body of work, which he hopes will serve as a legacy called the Artist Unknown Project Jean Michel is visiting artists all over the UK to talk to them, take stunning photos and tell their stories. Jean Michel’s photos are striking and the artist’s stories fascinating.
