As part of the AOH (Artist Open Houses) festival this winter I will be selling off my entire private art, antique and artifact collection from my home and online. Included among over 150 items on same will be many things that have influenced my work alongside many of

    1st - 13th June 2022 I will be visiting Japan for the first time in summer 2022. My itinerary will take in Tokyo and several cities in search of appropriate galleries and museums to exhibit my work. As a huge Japanophile it is amazing to me I have never visited the country.

An exhibition of The Great Wall of Vagina planned for Tokyo in 2013 was cancelled due to its branding as an obscenity by the Tokyo police (see article). Since

    Artists Supporting Artists - I'm spending 10% of my income to help other artists survive I personally pledge to spend 10% of the value of all new commissions or sales on other artists' work, until this crisis is over. Many other artists have joined the pledge. If we all support each other that money just keeps circulating. It's a win win.  #artistssupportingartists  The artist's life is a precarious one.
