I shall be exhibiting at the 'Landscape Paintings of The Isle of Wight Exhibition' at East Dene Coach House, Bonchurch Isle of Wight, between Sunday 4th October until Sunday 11th October 2015.

I am pleased to say that my painting of the Nieuw Amsterdam at Southampton has been included in the 2016 Maritime Gallery Calendar - not only that but it is also featured on the front cover. The calendar includes work by some of Britain's finest Marine Artist's, so it is a real honour for me to be included among such great company. Copies of the Calendar can be obtained from calendarclub.co.uk.

I had the pleasure of working with the great Stephen Card on a recent working cruise on the Saga Sapphire to The Caribbean. He was the Artist in Residence and I was the Art Tutor. The photo shows me exchanging paintings with him - he is with my painting of the tug Turmoil, whilst I have his painting of the Cuzco.

My next working cruise is on P&O's Aurora, which I am scheduled to join in Sydney during February for two Far Eastern legs of her 2016 World Cruise.

Sea Breezes magazine has, in the February 2008 issue, used one of my paintings to illustrate an article on the Avoceta.
