I was commissioned by The Royal Marsden to create a series of sketch like portraits of prominent members of their nursing staff as a way of creating a new visual history for the hospital. It was an enjoyable experience, although due to Covid it was not possible for me to sketch the people in person. Pleased that the finished images were received so well: follow link.

Spring Mini Picture Show: Online, Bankside Gallery, London

1st February – 14th March 2021


The Mini Picture Show normally takes place over the Winter holidays. This year last minute a new national lockdown was announced and the exhibition had to be postponed. Later it was reinvented as an online exhibition so everyone at home can enjoy members work online. The Spring Mini Picture Show has lots of smaller size works from artists of both societies, RE & RWS. All the pictures are available to buy online at affordable prices. The exhibition includes my little Oxo screenprint and classic London street scenes.
