Two of my pastiche photographs were selected to hang at this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.  

They were both hung in the main gallery coordinated by Grayson Perry. The walls were bright yellow and all the other artwork was fun and vibrant. The Moaning Geezer is on the left and Klimt in the Care Home top right. (The name Grayson BTW is a complete coincidence we are not related despite both having been brought up in Essex and enjoying art that is FUN!!!)


Two pastiche photographs have been selected for this year’s exhibition at Exeter Castle. Ophelia in the Hot Tub is an updated version of Millais’ melodramatic painting of Shakespeare’s character, but my Ophelia is not going to let some posh prince drive her to suicide. She is going to relax and then move on to read English and Art History at University.

G.S.O.H. (After Frans Hals) is my updated version of the Laughing Cavalier. He is taking a selfie to put on a dating website rather than commissioning an expensive portrait to send to his potential partner.


A collection of my pastiche work is still on permanent display at the Artizan Gallery, Lucius Street, Torquay.
