News update


Here’s a brief update on what I’ve been up to and what’s upcoming in terms of exhibitions and courses.

The exhibition at MoMA Machynlleth (Coastal Structures -and an Ice Cream Van) runs on till 28th April so there’s still a bit of time if you haven’t seen it yet.

Hadfield Fine Art will be showing some new work of mine at the Fresh Art Fair, Cheltenham 27th – 29th April

I’m currently in Germany and struggling to get enough work together for a show in Wasserburg on the Lake of Constance that will begin in September. It will be at the Kunst Bahnhof Vernissage (Private view) will be 7th September if anyone fancies a trip!


Coastal Structures exhibition

Those nice people at the Jackson’s Art blog have written some kind words about my show…


This solo exhibition by Pete Monaghan focuses on vernacular architecture in Celtic landscapes. His free and nuanced style uses mixed-media and careful colour balances to draw you into the beauty and dignity of the humble buildings and structures he presents. His style breathes life into forgotten dwellings and conjures up individual narratives with each work. This is a stunning opportunity to see Pete Monaghan’s work in the gorgeous village of Machynlleth, where the landscape directly echoes his subject matter and one not to be missed. You can view more of Pete Monaghan’s work here.

The show is at MoMA Machynlleth, Wales and runs till the 27th April 2018.

Over on FB and Instagram I’m posting the four stages of an ice cream van painting.

Four stages of an ice cream van. Stage 1. I set this as some sort of a challenge for my upcoming show…to produce a painting of an ice cream van; a chance to go slightly off track and use some different colours. My new neon colours arrived too late to be used. Very unhappy with this first effort but it was a beginning.

New website

My new website has gone live. It’s been quite an effort to rebuild since the old one was in iWeb, a program that apple stopped supporting some time ago. This one is built with a Mac specific program called blocs, which takes some getting used to but works well eventually. Anyway, I’ve been able to make the site mobile friendly and also integrate some  sort of provisional shop in order to offer the long awaited fine art prints. Have a look on thanks!
