A self-taught artist, I joined the UKCPS in 2009, not long after I discovered the joys of using coloured pencils.
Since then, I have taken part in many exhibitions, including a solo one, have sold work in galleries and have completed several commissions. I have also run CP workshops, given demonstrations to art groups and done personal tutoring.
In 2013 I was delighted when my picture Blue Door won Best in Show at the UKCPS annual open exhibition held at Patchings Art Centre, when I also achieved silver signature status.
In 2015 I organised the UKCPS second regional exhibition, in Richmond, Yorkshire, where I won a couple of awards, including the public vote for my picture Green Door, which I was very pleased about.
I also set up and run a UKCPS local group in Ripon, North Yorkshire, which meets every month, and any interested members are more then welcome to join us, so please get in touch.
