Royal Scottish Academy Annual Open 2023

Now in its 197th year, the RSA Annual Exhibition provides a platform for contemporary painting, sculpture, film, printmaking, photography and installation, alongside work by some of the country’s leading architects.

ING Discerning Eye


I am delighted to have my painting, 'Enclosed', selected for this year's ING Discerning Eye exhibition at the Mall Galleries. The Discerning Eye is an educational charity, established in the UK in 1990, to encourage a wider understanding and appreciation of the visual arts and to stimulate debate about the place and purpose of art in our society, and the contribution each one of us can make to its development. The exhibition comprises both publicly submitted works and works independently selected by six prominent figures from different areas of the art world: two artists, two collectors and two critics. Each section is hung separately to give each its own distinctive identity. The impression emerges of six small exhibitions within the whole.

Loop Exhibition


I am delighted to be taking part in the annual LOOP exhibition at Bankside Gallery on the South Bank in September 2018. LOOP is an informal co-operative of artists with a background in print.

A few newcomers have recently completed a Printmaking MA at Camberwell College. LOOP is an evolving platform that has presented some of the best in new printmaking.

Under Kindly Stars was shortlisted in the final round of judging for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2017
