For the past eighteen years I have been painting and drawing on Fisher Fleet, a little-known part of Lynn’s vast docks complex. Strangely, many Lynn locals are totally unaware of the Fleet’s existence!
I was first told of its whereabouts some 40 odd years ago by an artist friend who lived in Leicester!
It’s the creek where all the local fishermen moor their boats and an absolute heaven of endless images for the artist.
Colour, pattern and unusual shapes wherever you look; all ever-changing due to tides and weather. It’s also a graveyard for several old wooden fishing vessels which are left on the inner banks to rot away slowly.
Artspace on the Prom
I can’t exactly remember how I heard about the Cromer Artspace but when I did, I just had to go see it. I love Cromer with its wild, wind swept sea, so there was no holding me back. Although I’ve been to Cromer countless times, I was surprised at discovering this gorgeous Art Deco building fused into the cliff at the end of Cromer’s West Prom.

Chatsworth looking out
A recent visit, with friends, to Chatsworth House in Derbyshire allowed me to reflect on the practice of exhibiting contemporary art amongst the paraphernalia of days gone by.
(We are all familiar with the annual exhibitions at Houghton Hall.)
Thornham Village Hall has been the venue for the West Norfolk Artists Association Spring Exhibition for many years. This year is no exception.
Our Spring Exhibition over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend was a great success, with higher visitor numbers and more sales than ever before.
This spring, KL Magazine contacted me with an interest to write an article on my King’s Lynn work. I am currently working on a self-initiated project, to illustrate a book about the town of King’s Lynn. It will include historical facts, stories, and details of my own personal thoughts on buildings and streets.
