Welcome to my website
This site is to display my art, the pieces currently for sale and an archive of previous work. I think it is important to see the archive, as it not only shows the progress of the artistic journey, but may also give ideas for commissions.
Each artwork is from my own creativity and completely designed by me, however, I have occasionally had help with some of the technical aspects of assembling pieces, in particular the wall hangings. My sewing and beadwork are just not up to scratch!
You can buy a piece from the For Sale Gallery directly, or commission a piece by consulting with me. Both of which you can do whilst on this site. Artworks will be sent to you and the cost of delivery is included in the price.
My motivation: People, places & perception
The art I make is about expressing an emotional and thoughtful response to my life experiences, often particularly linked to a sense of place. I have traveled to some wonderfully beautiful landscapes and places, and met many interesting and lovely people. All this has had a profound affect on my perception and how I express myself artistically. My hope is that you, the viewer, will enjoy looking at my artworks through the prism of your own perception, making connections unique to you. More About.

First Blog, reflections on my artistic beginnings
In my first blog post I want to introduce myself to you, the visitors to my site. Hopefully some of you will find it interesting... As I write I have just turned 53 years old, so I think I can bring some perspective to my life and how it’s turned out so far. Looking back to my first memories
Observations on culture in a small town
Growing up in Nuneaton in the 1970's and 80's there wasn't much by way of visual culture, so the paintings I did notice made more of an impact on my young mind. There are 2 pictures I really remember from those days, one was a painting in the town's small Museum and Art Gallery and the other was a p
Art School: A tale of two cities
Art School: A tale of two cities I first went to Art School at Bower Ashton in Bristol. I applied there as when I went on a visit I was impressed with the fact that, at that time, they still did metal casting. I hoped to combine learning traditional methods with my own creative ideas. However,
