'Blue Bar, NYC'
2020
Oil on canvas
34cm x 28cm
£395


This painting is inspired by my visit to the Blue Bar, New York City in 2019. Next door to the famous Algonquin Hotel it is an incredible place to enjoy a cocktail or two! The neon light gives the bar its name with a vibrancy of shimmering blue that was a joy to experience. I just had to paint it and hope one day to return.

'Windmill Hill'
2017
Oil on canvas
64cm x 79cm
£275

This painting is inspired by a view that I drove past for nearly 10 years on my way to work each day. Just to the south of Petersfield in Hampshire, one can see the windmill standing tall on top of a hill in the beautiful South Downs. Painted during the spring I aim to capture the warmth of the morning sun as the landscape glistens yellow and orange as the rape fields come into bloom. This view always uplifted me on my commute and I just had to paint it.

'High Noon (Meon Valley)'
2017
Mixed media oil painting
22cm x 30cm
£95

Inspired by my love of working in mixed media, particularly cardboard I chose to paint the beautiful Meon Valley at noon. Close to home, the Meon Valley is a beautiful location to enjoy and explore. Rolling hills, large expanses of green fields, trees and pathways with a view that goes on for miles. This piece is built in layers of cut and ripped cardboard to capture the variety of textures and patterns in the landscape. The oil paint lies richly on the surface to evoke the vibrancy and beauty of the valley at noon.

'Rape fields near Winchester'
2013
Oil on canvas
50cm x 50cm
£225

Painted during the month of May, this piece is inspired by a car journey when the rape fields were in full bloom. I just had to stop and photograph this beautiful view on the approach to Winchester. The rolling hills of the South Downs once again provide irresistible inspiration for a painting. The dappled light cast stunning shadows across the landscape which were a joy to capture. The view goes on for miles and is always pleasure to travel through whether by car or on foot.

'East Meon at Dusk'
2015
Oil on canvas
45cm x 54cm
£225

Inspired by a golden sunset, I had to paint  this scene after a delightful late afternoon walk in East Meon. Located in the South Downs, the rolling hills just lit up as the sun began to set. The peaceful and desolate setting is broken by one dwelling tucked in the tree line. I often wonder about who lives there in such a beautiful location where nature is so undisturbed. The spacious green landscape in the foreground provides a simple and effective contrast to the rugged glowing hills and almost silhouetted trees behind. This piece was such a pleasure to paint.

'Oslo Opera House'
2018
Oil on board
33cm x 45cm
£195

Inspired by my visit to Norway in 2018 this painting captures the brilliant design of the stunning Oslo Opera House. With its marble-covered roof and sharp geometric angles this building has everything that I love about modern architecture. It is daring, contemporary and utterly wonderful to see first hand. To walk on the roof of the opera house and gaze across central Oslo and the fjord beyond is a memory I will treasure. I have never seen a structure like it. The large expanses of tinted glass glisten in the daylight and the sharp acute angles draw the eye across so many subtle levels and layers of the building. Although very challenging, I just had to paint this incredible structure to fully appreciate its ingenuity and beauty. I would highly recommend a visit. 

'Meon solstice I'
2017
Oil on board and cardboard
31cm x 23cm
£95

The summer solstice provides inspiration for this mixed media painting. This is the first of three in a series. Using cardboard I built up layers in such a way that the oil paint comes forwards out of the picture as the sun rays beat down on the landscape below. Semi abstract, I love to explore geometric lines and angles in my work.
