This involves: Organizing exhibitions locally as well as Petersfield Arts and Crafts Society, Liss Triangle Centre Exhibition Midhurst Art Society. Hampshire Art Trail Liphook Art Society The Society of All Artists (SAA) The United society of Artists (UA) I was Chairman of Petersfield Arts and Crafts Society from 2002 to 2006. Since 2003 I have worked closely with Churchers Junior School and more recently Selborne School during their Art Week, bringing the joy and chaos of silk painting and fantasy watercolours to the pupils' classrooms. I have worked with Petersfield Youth Theatre producing scenery for productions (Oliver!? and Robin Hood to name just two), racking my brains to create props fiendishly devised by a brilliant Director! In 2007 I was commissioned to paint an illustration of a legendary Japanese water sprite for a book on Sushi. I have on occasion been invited to judge art competitions at Village Fetes and for Art Societies and have sometimes tied knots in Craft Groups as we have grappled with the difficulties of beading. Since 2006 I have organised, run and participated in several local craft fairs and have started the tradition of a Christmas Fair at the house each year with invited local artists. I currently demonstrate Fantasy Art or Silk Painting to Art and Craft Societies and Adult Education Centres around the country, offering workshops for those who would like a more in depth approach.
