This post is not about photographs but about painting.
I've been a keen painter ever since I was a child, I studied Art at GCSE, A Level and at university too.
For the past 5 years I have taken part in Severn Vale Art Trail (I also designed the logo and design the booklet each year). I've always exhibited photographs and nothing else. But this year I decided to show some of my paintings along side my fine art photos. They are all oils and with 2 exceptions I have used a palette knife. I'm a sucker for thick thick paint and splodges! I hope you like them.

Last month I photographed a lovely small intimate wedding in Fishponds for Hayley and Dan. It was a chilly, crisp day and the sun managed to poke it's head out as we exited the church.
It was thoroughly romantic and beautiful. Look out for the gorgeous page boy and flower girl, they were adorable! (And the clock always says 2 minutes to seven!)
