After many months of working in the studio, I’m pleased to announce a new body of work today, featuring colour floral portraits. This new series is being launched through my new website, which also goes live today. It’s been a busy year!
In this digitally connected world, where a wide range of platforms are used to access the internet – from desktop PCs to tablets computers to mobile phones – I considered it to be very important that using my website and viewing the work be a user-friendly, content-rich experience, but still making sure that the emphasis is on the work.
I felt that after working on the more sombre black and white series Petalum, it was time to look at producing a series which could be seen as being the opposite in style and tone – light, airy and colourful. Considering that so much of my previous work has been in monochrome, I have to say that working in colour has been an enjoyable experience, but at the same time I’ve had to work at ensuring that colour didn’t take centre stage; I considered it to be an equal component of each image and that it shouldn’t overwhelm the other elements that comprised each study.
It’s my intention that this is the start of an ongoing series of colour floral studies, so more to come!
The blog you’re currently viewing has now been replaced by the News page on the new website, so this post will be the last entry on this blog. If you pay a visit to the new site and subscribe – via RSS, Facebook, Twitter and other social media – you’ll be the first to receive updates on my new work, exhibitions and all the other news.
Thanks for your interest and looking forward to seeing you over at the new website.

I’ve just completed two new botanical studies as part of the “Petalum” series – in full glorious colour! The field poppy and yellow iris flowers featured in black & white in the series have so much intrinsic texture and natural beauty that I felt that they should also been seen in colour.
They’re now part of the Petalum series online gallery and, as with the other studies, are available in a range of fine-art prints sizes. If you’d like to know more about the prints and prices, please let me know via my email. Thanks!

The April 2011 edition of the East Anglian Daily Times’ “Suffolk Magazine” was published today, here in the east of England, and on page 170 features a two-page colour spread of my images, the current and up-and-coming exhibitions and other news – the first of a new Suffolk Arts section in the monthly publication.
