I am a professional artist living and painting in the Portsmouth area but I have been selling my work internationally as well as in the UK from exhibitions, galleries and online over the past 25 years. I have always believed that an original painting should be special ... or why buy it! I was best known for my surf and sea paintings when I was working as the resident artist at a large Portsmouth gallery in 2021 - 2024. My nautical work has remained popular and I am proud to say they can be found in homes and businesses throughout the world. However, my art career has seen me rise from working in a gallery to running my own, teaching art and organising exhibitions and painting holidays in France. I am also proud that my skills and styles have developed over time and have moved from classic to modern and from portraits to abstract helping me develop a more modern approach over the past few years - modern floral work and knife painting - but the traditional challenge of the human figure, detailed fine art painting and portraiture will always be important to me. All the best artist are on a journey and developing all the time, I believe all the best work is and should be, creative, not just another painting like so many that have gone before, it needs to have something unique in it - it should have an honesty about it, art should never be just another painting for sale, the artist needs to put something of him or her self into every painting so that it is special to the artist and the people you are selling to ... creating art will never be just a job for me. If you can't see what you want I would be pleased to create something special for you - don't just buy it but have a say in the creating of it!
