Natural Journeys - exhibition

I'm excited to be having first solo exhibition in Tokyo, at the Shiba Park Hotel, in The Fifteens gallery space. It runs until 10th Jan 2009, and is open from 3pm-11pm daily.

There are around 40 paintings, mostly oils, mostly painted from life. Please pop down if you're in that neck of the woods. For those interested in combining a gallery visit with live music, I'm also going to be singing jazz at the hotel on their Friday jazz nights in December and 24/25, and also 9th January. Further music info can be found here on my website.

The opening night was a real blast! To celebrate I performed my own music to a nice cosy crowd of friends. The band - some of my favourite players - Andy Bevan, Jeff Curry and Andy Matsukami were smoking hot and so much fun to play with, plus a couple of wonderful musician friends sat in with us (thanks Katherine, Bruce and Chris!) It was quite amazing to have my music and paintings all happening at the same time! Everyone had a great night and I look forward to my next show opening!

It's been a long time between posts! Over the coming weeks I'll be uploading some of the paintings I've done this year, better late than never!! - so please come back again soon.
