It was great to launch my inaugural UK exhibition on July 5th 2015 at York’s According to McGee gallery. These story telling acrylic on canvas artworks cheekily entitled ‘New York, YOU York’ continued to feature the dollar motif on canvas hinting at aspirations to exhibit in the Big apple before the year 2020…..
The twist was the full 20 strong collection was painted at my old house in Chester at a rather difficult time when I’d agreed to sell my house (rainy day fund) to continue full steam ahead with dollarsandart. So the work and the stories behind each one reflects this to those willing to dig a big deeper.

At According to Mcgee,opposite Cliffords tower in York they collaborated with a team of supporters including Elzo Events, Speak Easy Libations, Friends4dinner, Marci Stuchliova & Joanna Keely, who provided Hair and Make Up and flowers respectively!
A big thanks for them for a great job and allowing me to catch up with friends who made the journey and to focus on talking about the meaning behind the 20 originals in the collection.
A long overdue catch up with Bo, one of my oldest friends!
The result was fun filled social, with an official launch from cricket legend and charity walker Sir Ian Botham, the UK Dollarsandart patron and one I’ve walked a few fairways with over the years!
A couple of the 20 were sold at the opening day….
With New visuality Artworks on display….
Adding to the event, captured wonderful well :-
