I exhibited at "Celebrating Sanctuary" and "Carnival" shows this year at the W3, I am delighted to have had four pieces selected for the December "Affordable Art" Exhibition. It features the work of over 50 local artists with the criteria of "small size, small price".The original art ranges from prints, paintings, jewelry, craft, t-shirts and cards.

Two pieces are untitled, (1)  which I painted in 2007 at the Hampstead School of Art and (2) which came out of a painting session in my studio more recently.

"Study for San Jose 33" is the original sketch from which the finished painting evolved - dedicated to the survivors of the Chilean mine disaster in 2010. "Going Home Part 2" is the second painting in the series exploring the symptoms of dementia and old age.
