If you’re at the Piece Hall in Halifax, pop in to the Yorkshire Gallery and you’ll find some Tired Pelicans taking refuge there….
Along with a selection of my Shelf-Portrait Limited Edition Giclee prints….
I’m greatly looking forward to being a part of the art buzz at the New Artist Fair at the Old Truman Brewery next weekend. Lots of new Shelf-Portrait work coming down to London with me, as well as a good selection of Limited Edition Giclee prints, framed and unframed….
Had a little ‘practice hang’ last week…
”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.”

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!
