An artist lead project to explore the limits of creativity at high altitude on a 7000m himalayan Peak called Baruntse. This october I am planning to be part of an expedition to climb Baruntse in Nepal. As you may know my artwork is heavily influenced by my experiences in the mountains. Baruntse - 7162m (23,497 ft) is a peak in the Khumbu region and will hopefully be the highest I have yet climbed to date on any mountain.

I am planning to climb Baruntse in Nepal for The Himalayan Trust UK because they do much needed work for the peoples of Nepal.

Please sponsor me to climb Monte Rosa, Switzerland’s highest mountain at 4634m for Cancer Research UK.

Cancer has affected a number of friends and relatives in my life over the years and continues to. Their suffering is tragic and the loss of good friends and loved ones can be extremely painful. Unfortately it still affects one in three of us at some point in our lives. If you could help me make even a small difference I would be extremely happy. As a thank you and to inspire more donations to roll in. I will enter all the names of the sponsors in a hat after the climb and one lucky person will win a signed original oil mountain painting, painted by me.
