Safe Arrival

My paintings have all arrived safely in London - phew!

They're now ready for the first big art fair of 2014, the London Art Fair at the Business and Design Centre in Islington, north London.  It runs from 15-19 January, and, as the first fair of the year,  it is the 'barometer' of the art world.

As well as the fair having an eclectic mix of famous names and cutting edge, the 2014 Fair will feature a collaboration with award-winning gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield.  Here's the Wakefield from the bridge...

The exhibition, which will focus on Barbara Hepworth and her contemporaries and the development of British Modernism, is very exciting for me.  I'm a big Hepworth fan and have visited the Wakefield/Hepworth Museum/United Nations/St Ives/Yorkshire Sculpture Park/anything Hepworthy on a number of occasions.

This is one of the pieces in the exhibition.
