Notable Presentations of Work

A limited-edition print of my 2016 oil painting titled ‘Estonia – Before the Storm’ was presented to The Most Reverend Urmas Viilma, Archbishop of Estonia, at his visit to the Diocese of Rochester, Kent, on September 24th 2017, to mark the 2017 celebration of the special partnership that exists between these two countries churches. The painting is from a series I created during a visit to Haapsalu, Estonia in 2015 and the original currently hangs framed in the House of Commons.
