Welcome to my Mini Gallery


Updated 02/03/14........(By way of a donation to Parkinson's UK all proceeds from sales of my art will go directly to this Charity until further notice. So please look, barter and buy!)

Welcome to my gallery, I hope that you will find it interesting as it offers an extremely varied collection of art which is expressed in a variety of styles and medium. All my work is hand painted which I hope reflects the passion and enjoyment I have for art, this is better explained in my 'Interview with the Artist'.


As both an artist and writer I find my inspiration mainly from the cities of Venice and London. More recently I find a need to illustrate my historical journals with topographical pieces which I hope brings the reader nearer to the artist. My most recent book 'Walk With Me Charles Dickens' serves to illustrate the revival in pen and ink monochrome watercolour which are based on simple tonal values, a style sometimes forgotten in time.

My Gallery Rooms 1-5 depict the following:
Room 1 : Watercolour
Room 2 : Venetian Collection
Room 3 : Venetian Collection 2
Room 4 : Abstract/Pop Art/ Acrylic
Room 5 : Merton College Prints

If there are any pieces that have sold and you would like me to reproduce in a similar fashion please do not hesitate to contact me.

In a similar manner I welcome any critique of my work, especially my topographical illustrations which have now become an important part of my love for art.
