I was delighted to see two of my tree photographs chosen by Chris Boreham Bespoke Woodwork to showcase two of his beautiful picture frames for a forthcoming exhibition.

Chris chose two images – ‘Winter Solstice Treescape’ and ‘Lime Avenue Sunset’ – from my exhibition, which is entitled Wittenham Treescapes. See more at: www.thetreephotographer.com
Chris Boreham Bespoke Woodwork and The Tree Photographer will be exhibiting at the Sylva Foundation Wood Centre during Oxfordshire Artweeks 2016. Open every day from 14-22 (except 18th when the venue is closed for schools). Why not come along if you’re local: entry is free and there will be lots to see from an amazing variety of talented craftspeople.
I’m looking forward to my next photography exhibition in May. It is entitled Wittenham Treescapes and features a series of images taken over a five year period within a one mile radius of the villages of Long and Little Wittenham in South Oxfordshire.
The exhibition is hosted at the Sylva Wood Centre (OX14 4QT) during Oxfordshire ArtWeeks. It is open to the public between 14-22 (exc 17) May 2016. There will be a collection of other artists also exhibiting fine art and beautiful craft in wood, so there will be a lot to see.
Read more on my online ArtWeeks gallery.
A selection of my photographs will be available to purchase, and I will be there myself on both weekends.
