Welcome to my new online Gallery.

Following the recent developments here in the U.K. I have been trying to find new ways of carrying on with creative activities as a Clifton Arts member.

Clifton Arts set a series of weekly challenges at the start of the Lockdown process called The Stuck At Home Still Life Challenge. This is designed to help members remain creative and keeping members in touch with each other and reaching out to our community, by posting entries onto the Clifton Arts website.

Shown here are my replies to the challenges.
