I'm so excited to share this beautiful new film with you. Commissioned by Love Basingstoke and made by Ben Mills, the film takes you behind the scenes into my art studio.
You can now see my paintings and prints at Slate Art Gallery in Royal Leamington Spa. I'm exhibiting as part of 'The Art of Design' mixed show, which also includes lighting, clocks, and interior designs.
It's the first time my 2 large elephant paintings have been exhibited together too - 'Defend' and 'Power'. You'll also find a selection of my canvas prints available to buy too.
The exhibition runs until 21 February. Find Slate Art Gallery at 44 Oxford Street, Royal Leamington Spa.
I'm so pleased to announce that my Golden Peacock bench raised £7000 at a charity auction on Friday 15 September - the joint highest sale of the night.
On the night, the Sitting With Jane auction raised a staggering £95,700, with 75% of that going towards the Ark Cancer Centre Charity.
The Sitting with Jane trail was a summer-long art trail to mark 200 years since Jane Austen's death - and saw Basingstoke reclaim their most famous daughter as their own. My Golden Peacock bench was inspired by the most famous Pride and Prejudice book cover.
In case you're wondering what happened to my other bench 'Once Upon A Time in Steventon' - this was sold privately to the bench's sponsor.
To celebrate opening their 1000th UK store in Overton, Domino's asked me to design a limited edition 'Domi-note' :-)
100 of the notes were hidden in Overton, Hampshire - each one worth a free pizza. The note is in homage to Overton's history of producing bank notes, and I had creative freedom to interpret the brief in my own way.
Nationwide, Domino's celebrated the opening by giving away 10,000 free pizzas, drumming up interest in the national media, including NME and Metro
This summer I'm excited to be involved in Basingstoke's Sitting With Jane art trail! Running from June - end of August, the trail sees Basingstoke celebrating - and reclaiming - its most famous daughter, Jane Austen.
Jane Austen was born and spent more than half her life in the Basingstoke area, yet this local heritage is not well-known. Sitting With Jane is about to change this!
There are 24 BookBenches to discover in total, each painted by an artist, and inspired by Jane Austen's life and work.
My benches are:
'The Golden Peacock' - my own vibrant interpretation of the most famous Pride and Prejudice book cover. You can find this bench at Eastdrop Park, Basingstoke.
'Once Upon a Time in Steventon' - which depicts Jane's birthplace, the tiny rural village of Steventon. You can find this bench at Tythe Barn, Basing House.
The benches will be auctioned off in September for the Ark Cancer Centre Charity, leaving a valuable lasting legacy in the region.
We've made it... spring is finally in the air! If you're anything like me, you're feeling like now's a great time to refresh your home, and take advantage of all that hazy daylight suddenly streaming in through your windows. One of the easiest ways to give your space a fresh feel is by hanging some new art on your walls. Get the colours right, and you'll create a cool calm environment, perfect for unwinding during those longer, lighter evenings this spring.
For inspiration, here are 6 of my paintings to make your home a springtime sanctuary...
1. Majorelle Blue
Bring cool Moroccan riad vibes into your home with Majorelle Blue, painted using a blue pigment I bought in a shop in Marrakech. Riads are traditional Moroccan homes, characterised by their shady courtyard gardens (as an escape from the intense sun), tranquil colours and Arabic patterns. At 90 x 100cm, this painting is a real statement piece for your home.
Majorelle Blue, £700, available via my online store here
2. Nature's First Green Is Gold
A large statement piece, this painting celebrates the majestic movement of hummingbirds. The gold spray paint literally shimmers in certain lights, ensuring this painting will be a big talking point in your home this spring.

3. Aegean Sea
Bring a hint of the Greek Isles into your home. Tranquil colours and spray paint drips capture the graceful movement of the turtle as it glides underwater. A mesmerising painting that'll have you day-dreaming of sunny faraway shores.
Aegean Sea, £400, available via my online store here
Its striking yellow colour means Grace will look amazing if your interior features greys or blues. Painted on chunky wooden panel, the spray paint pools and flashes of colour freshen up your walls and add enchanting texture.
Grace, £380, available via my online store here
5. Lost in Kyoto
It's Sakura season in Japan, meaning its famous cherry blossom is in bloom right now. This painting, with its vibrant pinks, purples and collage Japanese paper, captures the overwhelming beauty of Kyoto. Bold pink is on-trend this spring, so Lost in Kyoto will be a stunning Japanese-inspired addition to your home.
