Abstract combined with Surrealism

Spanish Barn, Torre Abbey, Torquay & Artizan Galleries. 2021/2

My work is a combination of surrealism and abstraction. I use folklore, iconic and 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, close to Stonehenge, such a magical place was a generous source for legends and fantasy.

Later life in London gave me the chance to visit some historical places, like The Tower of London  imagination takes over with the legends and stories. I now live in Devon, rich in folklore with many local tales and lots of history. Cornwall, Glastonbury, Castles, Islands and so 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 is my favourite medium and old techniques, I still like to use several layers of thin oils in many of my pieces.

I have been creating, promoting and exhibiting art for many years and my work has been purchased by collectors internationally, including USA, Australia, Far East, Europe and the United Kingdom.  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 local culture. 

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