I have been a lifelong professional painter and still get that special excitement when I start a new work. It is this feeling, whatever the medium, that I aim to pass on to new and established clients.
Through commissions and galleries my paintings are in private collections around the world and in public buildings in the United Kingdom.
In addition to my landscapes and portraits, each year I produce work to a specific theme. Recent studies have been influenced by the Countryside of Thomas Hardy’s Wessex. Paintings from this exhibition have been sold to collectors in Australia, New Zealand, Florida, Canada, France, Ireland and even South Korea.
A more recent theme which is still in progress is inspired by the classic Flemish portraits dating from the 15th Century displayed in Brugge.
New sailing oil paintings will be on show for the 2012 Sailing Olympics.
From figurative to fantasy I seek to capture colour and harmony and to lead the viewer into the understanding of my world.
