Happy New Year & Highlights of 2009

First may I take this opportunity to wish all of my supporters and customers a very healthy and happy 2010, and thank you for investing in my work, long may it continue to bring you joy.

During 2009 I exhibited in Arizona, Atlanta, in the USA and twice in Falmouth, I appeared on Antony Gormley’s and One & Other’s  “The Fourth Plinth” project in Trafalgar Square.   I worked at one of the most prestigious printing houses in the world, Advanced Graphics.  My work has truly gone global with some now in collections in Moscow, Japan, and yet more in the USA.

I was interviewed by ITV in connection with my work for The National Trust and The St.Just Mining Trust in commemoration of the Levant Mining Disaster.  Also, amongst other press coverage during the year, Cornwall Life published a 2 page article about me in their November Issue.

In addition to my work with The National Trust I was most pleased and honoured to be able to help with other charities by way of donating work, in particular Tanya’s Courage Trust, Spectrum Art and The Precious Lives Appeal.

Also, in late 2009 I took the decision to have a website redesign.  This  was carried out to my exact requirements by Mat Harding in Penzance, who worked very closely with me to ensure that the design matched what I had in mind.

Finally I am most pleased to have been asked by the owners and management of  Zafiros in Truro to exhibit my paintings with them.  Zafiros is a unique space, a contemporary coffee bar/restaurant and I am very excited to be starting the new decade with a permanent exhibition there.

All in all, this past year has been very busy for me indeed and there have been many highlights.  Pictured below are a few of those moments, and once again thank you to all of those who have faith in, and who enjoy my work, without whom none of this would be possible.
