Exhibitions, Demos & Workshop

Exhibitions and demos

I love the chance to meet people interested in Chinese art, and to answer questions about the philosophies and ancient practices behind my work.

In addition to exhibitions and art fairs, the fluid brush movements of Chinese painting and calligraphy lend themselves to live demonstrations.

Do contact me if you’d like to arrange a demonstration for your event or group.

Or sign up to my newsletter (link below) if you’d like to catch me at events in both Sussex and London.
