Harold Riley…

Well last night was one of those very special memorable events in life. Last night i had the wonderful opportunity of meeting up with Harold Riley after 30 odd years at his preview evening at Fraser Gallery St Andrews. www.rileyarchive.com

I first met Harold when he was invited to tutor myself and three other competition winners on the TV programme Magpie in the seventies. He worked together with LS lowry, and has painted Nelson Mandela, US presidents, Popes, Princes and Princess’ and of course me!

His wife Ashraf was there too and we all spent a bit of time reminiscing about us being at their home in Salford and also when they stayed at our family home in Scotland.

Super times and feel extremely priviledged to know him.

Please go and see his wonderful exhibition at the Fraser Gallery on South Street, St Andrews or Salford Quays in The Lowry Outlet.
