Over the years I have had quite a few requests for commissions, some I have taken up, others I haven't. It's not something I undertake regularly as I don't always have the time they need dedicating to them. And they do need more of my attention than a painting I create for an exhibition.
Why is that?

Over the last couple of months I have been working on a new collection of work for the Hope Gallery in Hebden Bridge. There was a clear brief to create some bright pieces for her gallery. As a painter who leans more towards the darker side of the colour range I did wonder whether I would be able to pull this off, especially as it was the middle of winter and quite frankly I do like my clouds of doom!

I generally plan my year out in terms of exhibitions, galleries, shows I need to work towards as I need to juggle my art commitments alongside my full time job. So to decide to jump in head first into a project which I needed to commit to for at least 3 months was well... a little bit left field to say the least.

It's been 18 months in the making but the new studio at the Craft House in Bingley is now completed and I have moved in. What can I say... it is just perfect... I love it and I can't wait until I can welcome you to the studio but we have waited this long so can wait a little longer until it is safe to do so.
