A body of work inspired by my love of the British landscape, especially the few remaining pockets that have escaped modernisation. When immersed in these landscapes, there's a sense of historical ambiguity, the ancient hills and traditional architecture offering few clues as to which century one is in. My paintings aim to capture that ambiguity; The artistic style, the landscape itself and even the figures that populate them giving little indication as to the period they're portraying.

This is a body of work inspired by my life-long interest in astronomy and the cosmos. Since ancient times the sky has held a fascination for us humans, perhaps because it raises fundamental questions about our own existence and our place in the universe, so it's a outstanding subject for art. I've drawn stylistic influence from many sources ranging from Fragonard and the French Rococo to the eerie surrealism of Paul Delvaux.
Traditional oil paintings take at least six months to dry sufficiently for a first varnish coat and framing. Works marked NYFS (Not yet for sale) are currently drying but will be available soon either directly from me or via one of my gallery outlets. I'm happy to accept paypal so if you buy direct, you'll be protected by their buyer guarantee scheme. Reasonably priced prints of most works are also available.
