Last week Stephanie Hoppen was introduced to my work by a very good client of mine in Cape Town, and she has invited me to partake in an exhibition  entitled The Art of Working Ships, opening in her London Gallery. Amazingly I have discovered that there are other artists who also paint tankers and oil rigs in this world. So I am now immersed in, not only, completing commissions for the Holden Mans Collection, and a new piece for The Studio Exhibition, which is opening Friday 14th, but now also painting an oil rig as well as a tanker or two. (My sister Tracey, who is the MD of a shipping Recruitment company in Singapore, reliably tells me that my ‘Tankers’ are not all Tankers, but all tankers are vessels and so I should correctly call my series Vessels, not Tankers. Thank T!)
