I am delighted to announce that I will be exhibiting at Southport Flower Show 2018.

Not only that but I am running a competition with the Flower Show to reward one lucky winner with the chance to have their portrait painted from life at this year’s show!

Win a Fine Art Portrait – Painted from Life at Southport Flower Show 2018

To be in with a chance of winning all you need to do is nominate someone special who you think deserves to be captured in oil on canvas. It could be simply because they’re a great Mum, a super Dad or the best husband or wife! The winner will receive two free tickets for two days at this year’s show.

To find out more about the competition including full details on how to enter please visit the Southport Flower Show website.

Painting from Life

As well as painting the portrait of the competition winner I’m planning to work on a still life piece inspired by the show’s theme for this year… Once Upon a Time. Keep a look out on my social media channels for progress updates live from the show!

I’ll also be exhibiting some of my latest works from my Lancashire Plein Air series as well as some brand new oil studies painted especially for the show.
