My background...
I am a British painter and sculptor who has worked and exhibited both in the U.K and abroad.
Here's a summary of my experience abroad. While In Prague, I exhibited an installation 'Chrysalis', at Gucci, central Prague, for a month.  In Northern Macedonia, I exhibited widely with my friend and artist Reshat Ameti, and other local artists. Back in 2000, I was invited to exhibit at the National Museum of Contemporary Art's  'I and the other' exhibition, bringing together artists from many ethnic groups after the conclusion of the Kosovo war and N.Macedonia's own internal conflict. My piece 'Force of Anger'  (view by clicking Earlier Work on menu) became part of the gallery's permanent collection. While in Slovenia, I was artist in residence' at the then 'Imprima' Gallery in Ljubljana for a year and then a further six months at Gallery Zula. During my time there, I exhibited with many artists from the region. In Venice, I was invited to design the set for English Theatre in Venice's production of 'Much Ado About Nothing', at Teatro Fondamenta Nuova. Since moving to Wales, at the end 2013, I set up my studio and have since exhibited with many local artists. 

Plans

I had planned to hold a series of sculpture and painting workshops in the summer of 2020 at my studio in Cardiff.  however, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these workshops have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. I hope to be able to initiate something in 2021. Please watch this space.

In September - October 2020, I was really pleased to have exhibited three of my sculptures (see 'Blue Cuttlefish' above) at Mall Galleries, London, in the Royal Society of Marine Artists Annual exhibition! With over 2500 submissions it feels like an achievement! See more under the menu heading 'Sealife sculptures - cuttlefish'. This is the second time I have had my work selected, in 2018 I exhibited 'Octopus 1' with the RSMA, click on 'octopusses and crabs' on menu heading ' Sealife sculptures'.
