‘Moments’ group show coming soon, and new Girl Town

I’ve just had some pleasing news that I’ve been invited to take part in a group show at Bowery gallery in Leeds. I had a solo show there at the end of 2013/14, called ‘Bof!’ which involved me filling an entire room with wall paintings and painted cardboard boxes.(see below)

My work has developed and changed somewhat since then (only a short time ago really, but my art work looks quite different) and this time I will be exhibiting six acrylic on canvas paintings in a show called ‘Moments’.

Other artists participating are Rachel Johns and Elizabeth Nast, and I will post more info about this exciting exhibition very soon.

I also have two new paintings that I completed recently to show you here:

The first is ‘Untitled #1 2016’ (below)

and this is ‘Girl Town Pool Babes’:

This week, disappointingly, I have had very little actual PAINTING time, as I have been busy sorting out other art related matters, (and also getting my first ever tattoo, which took up most of yesterday’s studio time!) but I have this in progress at the moment:
