I am really pleased to announce that I have had two of my paintings selected for purchase by the House of Lords Art Committee.

These will be included in the House of Lords collection for display at Millbank House in London.

The paintings they selected are:

‘Farm near Cuddington’- (Watercolour and Water-soluble Pencil)

and ‘Borage from Bledlow Ridge’ – (Acrylic on board).

Both of these works represent typical countryside in Buckinghamshire.
