Saltburn in Lockdown - Saltburn Community Response Art Exhibition, 13th - 14th November 2021

It's lovely to be taking part in this community exhibition by Saltburn residents - artists, craftspeople, photographers, amateurs and professionals, in response to our experiences, thoughts and feelings during the last two years of pandemic and lockdowns.

I'm showing a small selection of my Lost Horizons seascapes, made through the seasons just a short walk from home.

Here is an archive of flyers, images and memories from some of the exhibitions and events I have been so happy and privileged to contribute to.


Thank you to everyone who visited the two Open Art Postcard Exhibitions in which I took part in Summer 2017.

 Very many thanks to Durham Photographic Society for their warm welcome on Thursday 28th January 2016,

The evening featured Upon the Pure Stones by PL, plus our collaborative work Hebridean, a newly updated presentation of favourite images
from many trips to the Hebrides, set to music.
