Paintings at ‘The Royal Society of Marine Artists’ 2016

I will have four of my paintings on show at ‘The Royal Society of Marine Artists’ at The Mall Galleries, London from 28th September to 8th October 2016.


To celebrate the Society’s 50th anniversary of gaining their Royal Charter, this will be their largest-ever Annual Exhibition with some 400 works by many of the most celebrated marine artists at work today. In a wide range of styles, sizes and media, these works will depict the sea and coast, along with the ships, yachts and dinghies that sail the seas, and the people who work or take their leisure on or by it. In short, something to appeal to everyone.

‘Joint exhibition at the [mine] gallery – 1st July – 31st July 2016’

I am delighted to say that I will be having my third joint exhibition of paintings and prints with my fellow artist Abel Kesteven alongside an exhibition of selected works by Peter Kesteven, Abel’s late father.


The exhibition will feature a diverse selection of original paintings and drawings primarily captured ‘en plein air'(in the open air) or ‘alla prima’ (direct from life) as well as mono-prints and sculpture.


In addition there will also be a ‘never seen before’, and very limited edition selection of fine art prints of our most popular works available exclusively through the [mine] gallery.


Myself and Abel will both be at the gallery over the course of the opening weekend so I do hope you can come along and join us for what will be a very special exhibition.


We look forward to welcoming you to the gallery.
