Back at the desk

Well, I arrived back in Uist late on Friday evening. Orders received via my website during my holiday have been dispatched via first class mail today – apologies for the delay – thanks for your patience ladies and gents

Had a fabulous end of season break. Managed two full day printmaking workshops with the fabulous Jenny Gunning at Shropshire Fine Art in Ironbridge. I hope to do two more next time i’m down visiting family. While I was in Norfolk I did a two day art course with Steve Cale which was very enjoyable.

I visited London – only the fourth time in the last thirty years  Went to the private view of the NOA exhibition and it was great to see my photo “The Way” hung with all the fabulous art. Even better I sold the framed print and two un-mounted prints, with another order being received as well – only 5 of the edition of 10 left now.

Going awol…

Please note that I will be away from home from 26th September 2016 until very early in November, therefore any orders placed via my online shop are unlikely to be dispatched until after I return. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Framed prints, mounted prints and cards will remain available to buy in person from the Uist Craft Producers shop at Kildonan – depending on my stock there of course! The craft shop will close for the season on Saturday 15th October at 2pm.

My camera equipment, sketchbooks and paints are packed and I’m heading off to spend time with my family – it will be my mum and dad’s 60th (diamond) wedding anniversary – my dad tells everyone this has been a double life sentence – but he’s just joking 😀

While in Shropshire i’m going to be taking three printmaking workshops with Jenny Gunning at Ironbridge Fine Arts and Framing which i’m looking forward to very much.

I’ll also be heading to Norfolk for a couple of weeks holiday – a relaxing mix of birding, photography and sketching – it’ll be a welcome break after a really busy season here in the studio. I’ve also been lucky enough to get a place on a two day workshop arranged by Norfolk Wildlife Trust – “Learn to Draw and Paint Birds” with Steve Cale 🙂

At the end of October, after Norfolk, i’m heading to London for a few days – principally to see my photo “The Way” on display at the National Open Art Exhibition at Mercer’s Hall. I’ll also take the opportunity to visit the Society of Wildlife Artist’s 2016 exhibition at the Mall Galleries and would also like to go to Tate Modern as i’ve never visited!

If you need to Contact Me please feel free to do so – I will have email but probably won’t be checking it so often.

Congratulations!

We are delighted to inform you that your your submission “The Way” has been selected for the 20th National Open Art Exhibition!

Happily these dates coincide with my trip to the mainland so i’ve accepted the invitation for the private viewing on the 29th October – it will only be my third time in London in 30 years!
