Paintings and drawings

Ever since leaving art school, I have always worked with visual arts alongside music. For many years I worked as a community artist and played an active role in the UK's community arts movement. Among a whole range of projects, I worked on large scale murals, both painted and mosaic, made photographic exhibitions developed and used portable photo-silkscreen equipment with a big variety of community groups, and I also worked in multi-disciplinary teams with drama workers, dancers, story tellers, textile artists and so on.

Solo art exhibition in Reykjavík

Since moving to Iceland in 2004, I have been working on domestic scale paintings and drawings and I am exhibiting some of these through the month of November at the Gallery Grásteinn in Reykjavík. The exhibition runs until Sunday 29th November. This is be my first solo painting exhibition in forty years. Here are a couple of little video clips that give an idea of what the show is like.
