At the beginning of January I visited my first trade fair at London Olympia. I was left in disbelief at how many designers and crafts people were scattered around this maze-like place. I could have easily spent a week exploring. To see so many creatives in London makes the journey ahead seem daunting at times. A stall that caught my eye was the one of Susan Entwistle – you may take a look at her beautiful flowers! Despite the seemingly saturated market I left Kensington overcome with inspiration and motivation. I went straight back to my desk and continued my latest artwork.
Since the beginning of December I have been working on the largest metal plate yet, and I’m quite excited to announce it’s completion – nearly. It will run through the press just in time for this years submission to the prestigious RA Summer Exhibition. This is a date most artists are sure to pin onto their calendars.
The new year also brings with it a new mural commission. Being over twelve meters long and three meters high, it exceeds any scale I’ve previously worked with before, but is something I’ve always dreamt about creating one day. Progress images will surely find their way to Instagram in the coming months.
More recently, Four Square Fine Arts gallery displayed a selection of my prints at the London Art Fair in Islington. I was delighted to have been given the opportunity to exhibit at such an established event. It was a pleasure to stroll through the bustling hall and see contemporary art from all corners of the globe.
You may remember me mentioning the fantastic souvenir pop-up called We Built This City. It’s sad to say their stay on Carnaby Street, like all good things, has come to an end. But after a really successful run over Christmas, I have no doubt the team are building up to something big in the future.
Reflecting on the shop, I remember the time I finished ‘City of London’, a bestseller with them. I described the print as a cherished memory of London rather than a tacky souvenir, and it seemed like fate, when I was introduced to We Built This City soon after, and my drawing seemed tailor-made to their concept! I hope our paths cross again.
However, as the old saying goes, when one door closes a window opens – or in this case another door – as my giclées, and other Londonised products can be found at ‘We make London’ in Kentish Town.
This February commences with my preparations for my Private View on Princlet Street, this First Thursday (05/02/2015).

If some of you are nearby and up for a little do – this is another chance to view the Cityspheres up close!
And finally I’d like to forecast my first Mailout – as I have a lot more news on the way. Subscribers will be the first viewers of my secret reveal of a brand new print. For the curious amongst you, subscribe on the bottom of this page!
