I am an oil painter living in Felixstowe, Suffolk moving into the area from Scotland in 1988. My work draws on word play, humour and love, with my style leaning towards realist, quirky still lifes and figurative moments, all designed to bring a smile, a smirk or a thought.
I have studied at the Barnes Atelier of Art in London and together with Scott Waddell and Dorian Iten.
I regularly exhibit across Suffolk and in London and my work has been sold as far as the US, Australia and into Europe.
Oil paintings, mostly on canvas, sometimes on board, some available, some sold. Enjoy!
