Exhibits ...

I've just finished exhibiting at Spacefest IX  at the Starr Pass Resort in Tucson Arizona, where I premiered three new original pieces about events that happened during Apollo 15. The best part was being able to surprise Apollo 15 Commander, Dave Scott with them on Friday morning, as he didn't know I was doing them. Dave and I  spoke at the last Spacefest about the events that I have drawn, and I felt that I was given a gift when he suggested that it would be great if I could create something from our discussion. You can see and order prints of these pieces by clicking on the Gallery tab at the top of the page.

Earlier in the year, along with some of my IAAA friends, I exhibited as part of the  "The Art Of Space" exhibition at Space Tech Expo (STE) at the Pasadena Convention Center, Pasadena CA, which was followed directly by the National Space Society International Space Development Conference (ISDC) at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel at LAX.

In April, I was invited to exhibit at Yuri's Night LA, which was great. It was the first time that I've attended one of these events and I met a  lot of very nice people and the response to my art was fantastic. It was a lot of fun. Since the theme of the party was Apollo 8, I created a new piece, for the party, and which is now added to my online gallery.

I just got home from Tucson, but now I have to get ready for this weekend - Saturday, July 14 from 9:30AM to 4:30PM. I'll be exhibiting, again with some of my IAAA friends, at the Redondo Beach Public Library. There is a one-day AIAA "Neil's Day" Apollo 50th Anniversary celebration going on, which will feature an art display and talks.

Welcome to the online gallery of my artwork. I hope that you enjoy looking around the website and find it informative.

I also hope that you share both, my excitement and enthusiasm for the incredible adventure that is space exploration, and my appreciation for the thousands of people that have made it happen.

I have been a member of the British Interplanetary Society since the 90s and my passion for art and the Apollo missions has recently led me to becoming a member of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA).

You will find examples of my art work in the gallery, where you can order prints from. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments.
