I’m thrilled to be taking part in #ikonforartists where the Ikon gallery devotes its galleries and its first exhibition after lockdown to an exhibition of artworks for sale by over 250 Birmingham artists. 100% of the proceeds from artwork sales goes to the artist. I am showing a small framed mono print with image transfer: ‘Small Golden Shed 1′ celebrating my Grandparents’ back garden in a working class suburb of Birmingham complete with garden shed and Anderson Shelter.

I am selling some of my recent work and selected artwork from my back catalogue via #artistsupportpledge on Instagram – I’m also posting on my Facebook artists page so maybe have a look if you have the time or the inclination. Covid-19 has shut our world down for a time- take care everyone until we reach the other side.
My print ‘Round the Back 2’ is on display at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, Coventry as part of the Coventry Open 2020, however you can’t go and see it-the Covid-19 virus has shut our world down for a time. Take care people until we reach the other side.
