"Watching the World"
As seen in my DVD  " Amazing Ways With Watercolour  "

Yesterday the heavens opened as I  started  my journey to Wareham in Dorset to deliver new work to the Peter Hedley Gallery. I first started showing  at the gallery following an invitation by Peter to be included in an exclusive SWA,Society for Women Artists exhibition at his gallery in the Autumn of 2009. I had just won the Anthony J Lester Art Critic Award during that years SWA Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London for a collection of cockerel painting. This collection gained my immediate associate membership of the society.

I happily accepted to be one  of the artists in the SWA show and took the required number of paintings along  to be displayed during the event. When I arrived for the Private Preview I was thrilled to see my  watercolours had been selected as part of the window display. I was  even more delighted to witness them sell immediately. I was then invited to be a regular artist for the well established and highly respected gallery and have been showing there ever since. Peter Hedley is a wonderful  gentleman,gallery owner and businessman. The gallery boasts many leading artists of today including Nicholas St John Rosse and Victor Ambrus from the BBC Time Team fame.


Wareham is a delightful town to visit and I followed my time in the gallery with a lunch overlooking the river in gorgeous sunshine.Far different to the weather I had driven through to get there!

 Beautiful scenery along the riverside walk at Wareham in Dorset.
