Much of my work centres around two themes.
1. Maritime works with a particular emphasis on wooden boats and waterfront heritage.
2. Works that are born out of my travel experiences.
I work in oils, watercolour, pastel, pencil and also am experienced in limited edition lithograph prints. My art is a way for me to look more deeply into the world. Through my work I gain deeper (and often surprising) insights into the subjects of my work. I hope that viewers enjoy the subject matter, composition and medium used as much as I have in creating my work.
