Now I have a full range of merchandise available Tea towels, Prints, cards and my latest addition mugs.
All of theses are available direct through me,
I shall be at the Christmas Handmade market on Sunday 1st November or you can get in touch direct just e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
They are also available from the Tourist Information centre, in Staircase house Market place Stockport.
Its been great doing the research for my paintings, looking back on so many photos, flicking through my ever growing collection of Stockport books and of course talking to people and sharing stories.
I would still like to find out where the big sculpture that resided at the end of Merseyway ended up.

This a little cake I decorated as a thank you to Lynne and Jane,at the Studio in the Room at the top, they have been so supportive of my work and it's been a real pleasure to have held my first exhibition here, what a lovely friendly social space, if you just want to browse, buy something or call in for coffee, it's definitely one to visit if you find yourself in the Old Town.

The commission was for a painting with buildings and places that were significant in the lives of the customer, that meant something to them, so I had to approach it quite differently than my usual work.
They were delighted with it and will soon be on their wall accompanying the B/W Print of 'Old Stockport'.

I decided that following from my painting 1973 which I did last year, I would try and capture us all again a mere 40 years later.

When you actually look up and ahead of you as you approach the town, just near the Magnet pub on the right, this is what you can see, it was quiet when I took my reference photos, and I was able to actually stand in the road, a different story altogether at rush hour! This was early December the Christmas tree is up.
This is acrylic on board 16"x20"

One particular day, the sky was blue, the sun was shining and the reflections on the water looked amazing, I thought I'd try and capture a bit of this, its hard to imagine that only a few years ago there was nothing here, just empty wasteland ripe for development.
