I was pleased to welcome you all to my new year open studio-both local regulars and new visitors from near and far, including a couple who had seen my work on exhibition in London and travelled down to visit me in my studio.
Spent the day beavering away with Nick Pudsey in his editing suite to produce a short video about the presentation of commissioned paintings of YV musicians at the O2 Arena, London. This will be another film to put up onto my Vimeo page and will be accessible via my website eventually. It was great to relive the adrenaline flow and excitement of that day in January 2013.
As part of my art project at Rhosygilwen, Glenn Ibbitson and I collaborated on painting and filming Yang style Tai Chi. The short film “Embrace Tiger, Return to Mountain” is the culmination of that days shooting. For further details do get in touch.

Great to see the current issue of Pembrokeshire Life magazine which has got a feature written by Jenny White (Swansea based writer and critic) describing my exhibition and a series of workshops at Rhosygilwen throughout September. Start of a new body of work encompassing video, painting on scrolls and sculpture concerning my long term study and interest in Tai Chi.
Nick and Vicky Pudsey spent the day with me in the exhibition shooting lots of film to be edited for future videos which will appear on this website in due course. This included being interviewed by the gallery manager Mark Heycock.
