Upcoming Exhibitions & Events


My painting "Washeteria" was part of the 2021 Artist of The Year Exhibition in Nottingham

There is now a 3D Virtual Exhibition for those who cant get there via the SAA website.

What do I paint

I'm up for painting nearly anything. I have subjects I paint more frequently like animals, still lifes, and people but I always find challenging myself with something different from the last quite fun.

How do I paint?

I tend to plan carefully and think it through before I start, I find this saves wasting time with corrections later on. With acrylic paints I usually mix colours on a wet palette and apply the colour in thin layers to the canvas building up the painting in increasing detail. I usually start with the highest contrast areas.
