CORONAVIRUS and ON-LINE DEMOS

During the CORONAVIRUS pandemic all CLASSES and WORKSHOPS have unfortunately had to be put on hold - however I have a range of on-line painting demonstrations that I have put together. These are only £11 to join and easy to book via the 'SHOP' section: scroll to the end for the 'ZOOM demos' or click HERE

You can either choose to watch and be inspired or use it as an opportunity to do your own work alongside.


  #ARTISTSUPPORTPLEDGE

I have decided to temporarily keep the prices down on some of my smaller paintings and make some available at HALF-PRICE in support of the #artistsupportpledge initiative. I pledge that if I am fortunate enough to reach £1000 in sales, I will purchase a work by another artist for £200. This pledge is to all sales of my artwork via my website.

To see the work currently available go through to the 'Paintings' tab on the above menu and see the various series and what is still available. Please follow the #artistsupportpledge on Instagram to see work by the many other participating artists.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support, gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress artist @matthewburrowsstudio has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE #artistsupportpledge and the concept is a simple one. You post images of your work you are willing to sell for no more than £200 each. Every time you reach £1000 of sales you pledge to buy another artist's work for £200. This creates a dynamic culture and market, where all can contribute, whatever their level of success. This is a culture dependent on the honesty and generosity of our artistic communities at every level.
