Nature paintings:

Scenes from Painswick, Slad Valley, Bisley and Guiting Power. Being a guide for 'Cotswold Natural Mindfulness', I organise art inspired walks which are developed to awaken the senses and boost creativity; they also inspire my nature artwork. 'Lookout' and 'Rise Above' were still wet when I delivered them to Wilks!


This portfolio explores aspects of daydreaming. Through our imagination, we can give life and meaning to everything we see. This is multiplied when a window is added to provide another perspective or a different point of view. 'Daydream Believer' & 'How much is that..?' show figures looking outside - we can only imagine what they are seeing and thinking...

A new collection of scenes featuring some of my recent travels. Painted entirely with sponges, veering from post-impressionism to abstraction, the pictures of Amsterdam and Paris evoke the atmosphere at night in the rain. 'From the back of a Tram, Amsterdam' and 'Nightshift' are the first of my artworks to feature the Netherlands.

Before & After..

From the boot of my car to the walls of Wilks...

Run by Michelin star chef James Wilkins and wife Christine Vayssade, Wilks is a modern, vibrant restaurant in Redland, one of several award winning eateries in Chandos road, Bristol.

Wilks has just had a special refurbishment, after celebrating five years of being open. This is the second time I've exhibited here, displaying an eclectic range of eighteen paintings, specially selected to suit the ambience of the restaurant.
