”Public accomplishments and hidden secrets. Old Friends and loves lost. Simple jokes and profound truths. This bookshelf encapsulates half a century of the inside of my head. More intimate and more telling than any facial portrait could ever be.
As tromp d’oeil, only the larger than life scale gives the game away. Roo’s talent is to both abstract and reproduce the worn history of these much loved books. Working with Roo was a delight, her care and artistic judgement shining through at every step.”

I’m excited to have lots of new work ready (fingers crossed!) for this solo show at Northlight Art Space. A showcase exhibition of recent work before it heads off down to New Artist Fair Summer Exhibition in September, and Affordable Art Fair Battersea Autumn in October….
Down to London last week to deliver my latest bespoke Shelf-Portrait,
‘Properties of Matter’
My largest book painting to date at 50×100″ it was an absolute joy to paint 🙂
Very pleased with the result, as is the new owner!
A lovely weekend full of book-lovers at Derby Book Festival book fair. Great fun to select the winner of the ‘Shelfie’ photograph competition!
