Welcome to my blog
Waow! My collaged drawing of the stunning Correos (Post Office) building at Plaça d’Antonio Lopez has been selected as one of one hundred to be displayed on large digital boards near the Arc de Triomf. I love the layers of horizon that you can see in the city. The towers of this fantastic structure peak between the palm trees as tourists enjoy a drink in the shade below. One of them is often me! I
Thrilled to have been invited by Irving Miskel-Reid to exhibit my work in his beautiful downtown Dundee salon! So pleased to be able to stand back and see it completed this week.

I love Verdant Works, its a beautiful restored mill where you can truly experience what mill work was like back in the day. It was so cold I had to give Santa a hug to keep us warm! Ho! Ho! Ho!
My customers seemed to really like “Midnight on the Bandstand” a large screen print that I had made from last year’s water based lithography experiments. A customer had particularly wanted this to send to Canada. There’s a bench in the park commemorating one of his dear relatives and he felt that my composition captures that very well.
