Painting News:

A selection of my work can currently be seen at
                MARKET HOUSE GALLERY
                Market Place
               TR17 0AR
               FERNLEA GALLERY
               Fernlea Terrace (near the bus station)
               St. Ives
               TR26 2BH

Both galleries feature top-quality Cornish fine art and ceramics, so I am delighted Gallery Director,  Paul Longthorne, has agreed to show my work.

Writing News:
A selection of my poems has been been chosen for inclusion in a new anthology of contemporary Cornish Poetry.
Entitled 'WAVE HUB' and edited by writer and academic, Dr. Alan M. Kent - it will be published by Francis Boutle later in the year.
I'll post availability details in due course....

Music News: 
Following the recent youtube posting of my original version of 'Coming Up to Grass' from Red Hand Caves, NSW, my son is currently producing new versions of both 'Catch That Train' and 'Stamping Ground' at his recording studio in Sydney.
When I was out there in April, I left bare-bones guitar and vocal versions for him to develop -
he's now adding wonderfully luminous, post-industrial aussie sounds.
We hope to post it all when it's fit to fly......

Painting News:
My Rock Show proved to be my most successful to date.
It was very heartening to meet and talk with both old and new buyers.
So now it's on with the next bit!
I am currently busy with new work, framing it up and preparing to take it to galleries.
Watch this space for news.

To view, just follow the link from this web-site.
The nonchalant three-year-old in the foreground is my Australian grandson, Rhys -
he's so hard to please!
