Abstract combined with Surrealism

Spanish Barn, Torre Abbey, Torquay & Artizan Galleries. 2021

My style is mostly abstract combined with surrealism. Inspiration often taken from folklore, historic places, legends or mythology in order to weave interesting narratives into my paintings.

Some of my earlier years were spent living on Salisbury Plain and Stonehenge, this is such a magical place with a generous source for legends and fantasy.

A move to London gave me the chance to visit some historical places, such as The Tower of London and my imagination was like a sponge for  legends and stories. Now in Devon and Cornwall, so rich in folklore with many local tales, full of history, such as King Arthur,the magic of Glastonbury, plus Castles, Islands and much more.

Art has always been my passion, from student days at Salisbury School of Art, gaining knowledge and guidance from some excellent mentors who were truly inspiring. Oil painting has always been my favourite medium, the flemish technique with the use of many layers of thin oils, still used in many of my pieces.

I have been creating art and exhibiting for many years, my work has been purchased by collectors internationally, including USA, Far East, Europe as well as many parts of the UK.  Currently I am honoured to be Chairman of Torbay Guild of Artists and proud to be involved helping to arrange exhibitions in order to enrich our local culture here in Devon.  

Original paintings and limited edition prints of my art can still be purchased direct from myself or from: Saatchi Art, Art2Arts, Art-hub online, or direct from local gallery representation. Artizan Gallery, Torquay.
