Art is to be enjoyed!

I love making it and I hope you will love it hanging on your wall. What could be better than hanging a work of art on your wall inspired by a special moment in your life? You were there at your special moment, you had your camera, or your phone, and you caught the moment. Why not email the image to me to start a discussion about creating some art specifically for you?

working from photographs

The modern way: everything is recorded, cast into the fray for five minutes of fame or discarded in digital disregard. But we are real people, those moments are special to you. why I work from photographs

handcut stencils

Artworks are created with a process, artists find a process that fascinates, excites them. what I like about stencils

the unique effects of spray paint

Some art processes are very controlled, creating exactly the image the artist wants. Some art processes are rough and ready, serendipitously creating something special or ruining the work. the joy of spray paint

the making of a portrait

Some photos a friend took while I was making a painting me at work

sketches & postcards

All artists do sketches to keep their eye in, to work out their ideas. Some of my sketches I do on postcards, which I am happy to share with you. Find a card on this site, enter your address and I will post it to you: sketches & postcards
