I was born on Merseyside in 1959 and went to Newcastle University, where I gained a BA(Hons) in Fine Art in 1981. My work is abstract but takes its inspiration from different sources, including derelict buildings, graffiti, and jazz.
This is the second year we have run the exhibition at the Waterbeach Barracks site, this year there are more artists taking part.
On this website you will find details of all the artists taking part, their work, and other events and activities that will be part of the Open Studios event.
We aim to provide regular updates on what we are planning, so watch this space! You can subscribe for emails updates using the link to the left.

We are proud to announce that there will be a Winter at the Beach Exhibition taking place at the end of November with the next Pop Up Cafe!
Local filmmaker Jack Jenkinson has produced a short video of our summer exhibition event. We hope that you enjoy it!
The team will be setting up stall either in the Community Space, [or outside, weather permitting] where you can learn about the Waterbeach Cycling Campaign and discuss what provision you would like to see for cycling in the future. They will also be giving out information about the Greenways ‘engagement’ events.
Day 1 of the Summer at the Beach exhibition went really well. The gallery was looking really good and we had lots of visitors.
We’ve got a real treat coming up this Saturday for our Summer at the Beach opening event. The Cambridge 31a Model Railway Club have very kindly agreed to set up one of their layouts in the Barracks Community Space for the day.
Following lots of hard work and preparation this weekend was the setup for the Summer at the Beach art exhibition.
It was a couple of long days, hanging work, moving and arranging but we think we are getting there.
Looking forward to seeing lots of visitors to enjoy the artwork over the next few weekends.
Have a look below for some of the set up photos.
We have a philosophy at Summer at the Beach that any art is best seen either side of a cup of tea and a slice of cake. This year is no exception with two cafes honouring us during our three weekend run.
We are pleased to announce that THE GREAT NEPAL BOOK SWAP will be visiting the Barracks this year on the 15th and 16th of July
This year as part of our opening event on the 1st of July we are running two great workshops for all ages.
First up its paper plane making. Try your hand at building a Head Hunter, a Ninja or even a Swashbuckler and see if you can make it to the role of honor on our test track of destiny. 12-4pm
Next up is the Bike Bling workshop. Bored of those old two wheels? Bring your trusty velo to the Barracks and see if we can make it sparkle again. 2-4pm.
