Nes Artist’s Residency ,Iceland Feb 2019

I have just returned a truly inspirational trip to Northern Iceland, when I have been working in a studio with 12 other artists for the past month creating lots of exciting new oil paintings based the incredible surrounding I had living in the tiny village of Skagastrond.

If you would like to see this new works please come along to my open studio which will be held over the Bank holiday weekend in May 4th, 5th and 6th.

The Oxford Map - Now on sale!

So some of you may remember that the year before last I set about creating a map of London. (Still available to buy from my website) My aim is to create a Oxford map which will become a Limited edition Giclee Print. It will be sold in galleries as a piece of artwork rather than a poster print and celebrate the historical beauty of the city.

How it began …..

Other news….

Work now on permanent display at The Bristol Royal Infirmary. ( 'The Cranes' pictured above)

 "We had a meeting with the A&E matron today and she said the response had been phenomenal. Everyone loves the scheme and particularly single out your artwork as being interesting, calm and uplifting.  It’s made a real difference to staff and patients"

My Background

I graduated from Falmouth College of Arts in 2004, where I studied Illustration. Since then I have worked as both an Illustrator and Artist, creating bold and fun illustrative pieces for both publishers and individual commissions.

My paintings are inspired by the waterways of England with a strong emphasis on the urban landscape. There are more than 50 paintings in my collection, with more being created all the time. They depict London, Bristol, Bath, Clevedon, Henley-on-Thames, Windsor, and Brighton, just to name a few. These works are available as original oil paintings, or where the original is sold most images are also available to buy as Gicleé or canvas prints. 

I have been commissioned regularly over the years. This is a great way of having a painting personalised with members of the family, a familiar place or extra quirky editions – Please email me with your ideas!
