photo of the artist

I Paint and draw modern life, be it local scenes, city streets, landscapes, seascapes or portraits.

Some people have remarked that I have an impressionistic style, I'm not aware of this however. Indeed, paradoxically, artists that inspire me are Hernan Bas, Gauguin and Sir Stanley Spencer. Painters that use artificial colours in natural settings and soft smooth rounded figures, respectively.

When working I like to experiment with different techniques and effects, using acrylic, oil, chalk pastel, pencil, watercolour, or whatever I have at hand.

Originally from the North West of England, I now live in London and picked up a paintbrush a couple of years ago after a 20 year break.

I have exhibited in galleries, cafes and art fairs (please check my blog on the homepage for latest info) and recently my art has been chosen and published on the homepage of "The Upcoming" magazine.

For commissions, I work from photographs. If you want a picture sketched or painted I can deliver the piece in a specific medium. Feel free to see some samples of my work here.
