At this time of year, when we are marking the Centenary of the end of the First World War, I thought it appropriate to post a painting I did in 2014 marking the beginning of that awful war. It was also used for the programme for a commemorative concert that year. The text is very much part of the painting.
This painting and the text is the Star letter of the month in the January 2019 edition of The Artist magazine.
Here you will find my Paintings showing a large collection of works on diverse subjects from home and abroad and in several media.
Many paintings have been exhibited at exhibitions or entered in competitions and several have won awards. Exhibitions include the RBA, RSMA, ROI, SWA, UA, ING Discerning Eye and major art societies.
Most of my art career was spent on officially commissioned military paintings but now I try to limit this side, although I am happy to discuss possible military work.
I am intrigued by different countries, cultures and people and attempt to capture something of these in my paintings.
Painting is a continuous process of exploration and experimentation which explains my variety of styles.
If you are a past customer, thank you so much for enabling me to do what I do.
