My Pleinair Exhibition – My Journey so Far 

I am an experienced Staffordshire artist who enjoys painting in oils. My work is mainly inspired by my natural surroundings. Over the years, I have entered prestigious art competitions.

 

I am delighted to be having a solo Pleinair Exhibition at a fabulous art studio and gallery in Newcastle-Under-Lyme. Running from the 6th of July to the 24th of July, a very warm welcome awaits you.

Entitled ‘Discovering Pleinair ‘ as, for the past three years, I’ve been discovering my local surroundings with fresh eyes and a renewed vision. I have also travelled further afield, in the continuous search for interesting subjects to paint.

 

The upcoming exhibition is a collection of over 70 pleinair works, covering a wide range of subjects from landscapes, seascapes, urban landscapes and still lifes.

This exhibition explores my growing interest in our natural surroundings, and goes on to explore the dual challenges of experimenting with style and colour. Over the last three years I’ve learnt so much, and developed (I hope!) as a unique Pleinair Artist.

 

I am continuing to enjoy the challenge of outdoor painting, and later this year I am going continental for the first time, with a planned painting trip to Italy.
