The Collections



Throughout the year I create a series of paintings based on a themed subject matter and style.

With each collection there is a unique thread that marries the concept. Their appeal is to engage with a wider audience, covering the depth and breath of topics married with my technics. They centre on a series of varying subjects always to challenging, - creating differences without repetition within a theme.

With the main body of my paintings concentrating on figurative and portrait work, I'm able

to connect on a more emotional platform, whilst finding a balance between consistency and creative explorations, but my landscape paintings are classically based studies applied with either gold or silver additions for  a more contempory twist.


'Beauty in Ancient Worlds'


This body of work explores the diversity of the ancient


world of the Romans and the marble bust.


For me the classics will always remain an influential reference point, - a romantic vision for perfection, creating an idealised interruption for both human and animal form.


Drawing inspiration on a rich heritage each works are detailed observational paintings, conveying a period in time that has eroded with a slightly damaged, historical reference.


The additional application of a fragmented gold leaf background symbolises the era of imperial richness, that once honoured ones’ status in society but now with time has prehaps became damaged and aged.

'The Silver Line'




The silver line is a series of both land and seascapes. It represents a distinct horizon  creating the intersection between the earth and sky as seen by the observer. This sleek, yet sophisticated silver line adds solidity, purity and richness of contemporary playfulness within a classical painting reference.


'The Living Canvas'


Tattoos have their share of misunderstanding.

Over various times they have even been banned and in many cultures have been deemed too socially unacceptable, then in others have conveyed statu, wealth and have marked their statement in history.


This collection explores the various ways in which we silently communicate our human emotions with symbolic representations that we don’t always want to put into words. Based on the wearer they are truly an individual piece of art.


A living canvas of story telling which can show a sign of strength, mark or hide a permanent emotional or physical scar or be uplifting to celebrate ones’ love in life and happiness gained.

'Silver Lining Contrasts'


  Box sets


In addition to the series above I have created a smaller box canvas series that play with the contrasts of colour that nature displays through dramatic skies, cloud formations all set with vibrant, contrasting land and seas landscapes.
