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!
All entries must be approved after submission,
which starts this Sunday November 17th. I am happy to say that my
Fox Mandala painting has already been approved by the committee and will appear
in this year’s catalogue.
The Exhibition opens on Thursday 28th November and closes on the 8th December at The Mall Gallery in London. I do hope you will visit, entry free!

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.
Earlier this month I took part in The Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers Exhibition at The Mall galleries in London. This year I had six paintings in the main exhibition and four commissioned portraits in a side exhibition of Granville Family Tree portraits.
