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.
