What a fantastic opportunity York Open Studios is for an artist, especially a portrait painter like myself. It’s the art event of the year in York, with many of the city’s best artists getting involved, visitors can plot wonderful routes through a range of studios and see some beautiful contemporary art.
Over the first weekend I had a phenomenal number of visitors through my door all excited to see portrait painting…

The second weekend, wow, even more visitors through my door! Here I was (the week before the first weekend) telling myself that just pulling the exhibiting off was a huge achievement; regardless of whether anyone actually came to visit me or not. I would say I seriously underestimated my work. So many wonderful comments and conversations I have had over these too weekends – my visitor comments book is bursting with encouragement – thank you!
