You can see my work at the following shows


Coterie Gallery
11 - 31 May 2019

‘Prosaic’ is an exhibition that brings together work by over thirty artists, each with a keen interest in painting.

Curators Sean Williams and Bryan Eccleshall aim to celebrate the breadth of approaches to painting while adhering to a common sense definition of what painting is.

‘Prosaic’ might mean ‘commonplace’ or ‘unromantic’, but when applied to painting it grounds the work in a kind of normality. None of the artists take the viewer on flights of fancy, but would rather rigorously engage with the world as it is. That doesn’t mean that the work is commonplace, though. There is great variety here.

On a Table

Apples & Pears Gallery
1 June - 7 July 2019

A solo show of 3 new works. 'On a Table' is a celebration of domesticity and the everyday. Contact the gallery directly to arrange viewings.


North Gallery, Exchange Place
6 - 27 July 2019

Botanicals is a contemporary art exhibition devised and organised by Fronteer. Previously, Botanicals incorporated an open call, encouraging artists to respond to the theme, 30 artists have been selected for this exhibition.

Humans and Nature

Prosaic Projects Gallery
30 July - Ongoing

A small space for experimental exhibitions, trial runs, etc. It is important that artists and makers have some sort of platform to demonstrate their creativity, be it a London gallery or a wall in the kitchen of a studio. 'Humans and Nature' is the inaugural exhibition at the new gallery space in Sheffield.

Green City


17 & 18 August 2019

Green City is a pop-up exhibition of postcard sized works. Selected works are inspired by plants, flowers, gardens, weeds, succulents, pot plants, trees, and anything related to Sheffield as a green city, as we help to grow and support the regeneration of this urban city centre area.


Painterly Exchange

North & South Galleries, Exchange Place
1 - 30 November 2019

A group exhibition of 17 painters based in Exchange Place Studios. The show is the culmination of 12 months work by the artists, responding to the theme of 'regeneration'.

Prosaic Mosaic

Bloc Projects
22 - 26 October 2019

Building on the success of the first show, this salon-style exhibition features the works off 55 artists. The breadth painting practice shown all has something to say on 'pigment on substrate'.
