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 enage with a wide audience, covering the depth and breath of topics and technics. They centre on a series of varying subject matters always to challenge, - creating differences within repetition and theme.

With the main body of my paintings concentrating on my 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'


In this body of work I explored the diversity of the ancient

world of the Roman, 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 their rich heritage each works are detailed observational paintings, conveying a period in time that has eroded with a slightly damaged historical reference. The application of with a fragmented gold leaf background symbolises the era of imperial richness, helping to honour

the status in society that has became damaged with time.

'The Living Canvas'


Tattoos have their share of misunderstanding. From being banned, in time, in many cultures, from being too deemed and socially unacceptabl, then in others a way to convey status and wealth of their a statement in history.


In this series I explored the various ways in which we

silently communicate our human emotions. Symbolic representations that we don’t want always to put into words. They can show a sign of strength, maybe a permanent mark of an emotional scar, or be uplifting to celebrate a love in life and happiness gained.


Based on the wearer they are truly an individual piece of art. A living canvas of story telling.
