Spring News

I am delighted to learn that this years Hilliard Society's annual exhibition of miniature paintings will go ahead this year in June.
The above painting is one of my contribution to this years event and you can visit the show for free.
Full details are on the society's website

Some of my miniature paintings have been licensed to Pattern Weights. These are small but highly decorative metal weights used by dressmakers to hold pattern pieces instead of pins. You may have noticed such weights being used on the popular TV series The Sewing Bee.

A New Year and a New Lockdown.


I have been getting back to my roots and playing around with pattern design.

Stay safe everyone, stay warm.

Due to the worldwide Pandemic it has not been possible to exhibit any of my paintings with The Hilliard Society or The Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers. Here's hoping for a brighter future for all of us next year!

The Hilliard Society, Wells.

Miniature watercolour painting of a Little Owl by Valerie Greeley R.M.S., H.S.
Four of my miniature paintings were accepted into this years annual Hilliard Society Exhibition in Wells. This was my third year to exhibit with the Society and was delighted to have been elected as a full member. I can now add the initials HS to my name. 

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the death of Nicholas Hilliard, an occasion which has been marked with several important exhibitions, including one at The National Portrait Gallery in London earlier this year. Hilliard came from Wells, Somerset and became famous for his portraits of Queen Elizabeth 1st and other notable figures.
