I paint in oils on canvas. My speciality is “City Life” depicting major cities of the world such as London, Paris and New York along with iconic landmarks such s Big Ben, The Eiffel Tower and The Empire States Building. My paintings transport the viewer to an idealised and romantic society free from the urban realities of the 21st Century. Couples meeting at street cafes in Paris, commuters traversing 5th Avenue or Brooklyn Bridge in heavy snow or perhaps killing time in Grand Central Station, New York are typical themes. My semi-abstract landscapes feature poppy fields, English farmland in winter and Mediterranean vistas. My seascapes record British coastal locations such as West Wittering and Itchenor in West Sussex. Hallmarks of my work are tonal balance and simplicity. Soft greys with a touch of orange or red regularly feature within my colour palette. My paintings are published internationally by leading art publishers. The originals are available for sale and can be viewed online or by appointment at our premises in Eton, Berkshire. On occasions, home viewings can be arranged within the London area. Commissions can be undertaken. Prices range between £1000 and £5000 depending upon size.
