Nature Through Art Exhibition

Castle Espie Gallery
Saturday 16 March -
Sunday 28 April 2013

For the Nature Through Art Exhibition my inspiration has come from the wonderful array of birds ducks and ducklings that can be seen at WWT Castle Espie and Loughshore.
This was my first showing of artwork in a gallery and feel honoured to be selected by the Castle Espie Gallery for this exhibition.”
The Gallery at WWT Castle Espie Wetland Centre was a wonderfull place to show my latest paintings of wildlife. Three were selected for the exhibition The Curlew, The Kingfisher and The Blue Tit
