I am currently working on the ‘Drinking with Angelika novel. It is expected to be available from this website soon.
The forthcoming show is about a modern day art gallery who purchase the work of an unknown artist as a final attempt to save their London gallery from going bankrupt. A rumour spreads that crying sounds can be heard coming from the room at night where the portrait is on display and the portrait cries tears at certain times of the year. As the truth is discovered it turns out to be the work of a young Russian artist who in 1918 was commissioned to paint the future bride of the Imperial Emperor.
The young artist falls in love with his subject and the pair plan to run away together to escape the Russian revolution and the forthcoming war. The love between the couple is so powerful that this embeds into the young artist’s masterpiece as he paints and the power of his love lives on beyond their years.
I am also working on recording projects with local singers including a solo album for singer Maisie Waller, which we expect to be completed towards the end of the summer. This project will include a selection of my original songs and will be produced by David Salter and recorded at his Realive Studios in Thanet. www.realivestudios.com
