North Bristol Virtual Arts Trail

This year I am taking part in the North Bristol Arts Trail Virtually. This is our first year trying this approach and I am having to run fast to ‘up’ my social media skills! It will work due to the wonderful skills of my switched-on fellow artists in the NBA!

I hope that if you visit my work virtually and feel that you’d like to see or buy something you will get in contact to arrange a way we can manage this safely!

If you are new to my work, I love drawing, sketching and painting in oil paint. To start a new painting I sketch ‘en plein air’ and using the sketches and photos taken work this into the finished work on canvas or board.

My inspiration includes the cityscapes of Bristol and landscapes and seascapes through the West Country.

Bristol Impressions Calendar 2021

We have risked producing the Calendar for 2021 this year and I hope you like it and buy it. Printing a smaller run, as many of our tourist outlets have been closed, we hope that there will be enough for our regular customers.

The calendar is available at Coldharbour Gallery and 212 Gloucester Road as soon as the lockdown is lifted but do send a message to me over the Trail weekend if you would like to buy a copy or copies and I can arrange a pickup. Trail Weekend Offer still in place for those orders at £10 each or two for £18. Have a look at this year’s calendar at www.artistcalendars.co.uk

Where you can buy the calendar…

During lockdown Coldharbour Gallery is showing a window exhibition of calendar originals. Once lockdown is over the calendar will be available at:

Coldharbour Gallery, 111 Coldharbour Road, Bristol BS6 7SD

Romantica, 139 Gloucester Road, Bristol BS7 8BA

Room 212, 212 Gloucester Road, Bristol BS7 8NU

Greeting Cards

I now use Green Pebble Card publisher to produce and distribute a range of my paintings both nationally and internationally - apparently my very English images are popular in Australia! They also produce my images on notebooks and calendars. Do check out the cards, now numbering 20+ at www.greenpebble.co.uk

Locally my cards are available through Gloucester Road Post Office and Coldharbour Gallery.

Art in Hospitals

I am one of the many artists whose artwork is part of the collection Southmead Hospital and Cossham Hospital Bristol. It is lovely to have feedback from people that they enjoyed the work and hope that it helps when people may be worried or suffering.
