I’ve been revisiting this painting the past few days and as each time I looked at it, I felt it needed a different conclusion , especially because of the direction my work is going. I am more at ease with its development so I think this painting has come to a better place now… ‘Communication’,Oil …
A small part of how this painting came about. https://youtu.be/XL2rZ5jOA9k 'Watching the Stars Watching You' Oil and Cold Wax on Canvas, 36cm x 46cm x 1.5cm
The beginnings of a new work. Quick rough sketching and mark making with pencil. The drawing is an opportunity to be expressive and free. They are inspired by my walks and trails I map as I walk. I am also inspired by the rocks and boulders that I come across scattered in the landscape of …
UntitledOil, cold wax on panel,15cm x15cm
This is one of the fun parts of making the painting. One of the expressive parts for colour, as the values form from lights into darks. It’s almost like the colour is dancing along with the under drawing’s lead. Small clip of video I’m putting together of this work as it develops. Watch this space.
Current times made me re-look at this painting that I painted a small few weeks back. Art and music are more than ever so important right now. I don't want to mention the, what I think is now the new 'C' word. There is too much negativity out there right now and these times are …

The Dancer,Oil and Acrylic on Linen,30cm x 30cm x 4cm
I unintentionally painted this entire painting upside down. I came to a point were I didn't want to go any further with it. It was just 'done', in my mind but there was something really bothering me about where it came to. I turned it upside down, and it seemed to work immediately. How funny.. …
Small work on panel Time Loop,Acrylic on Panel,15cm x 15cm
I enjoy how colours talk to each other and the challenge of making them work within one shared space. Line and texture fall into that same venture at some point and pose similar challenges. I never really know where a painting is going until almost the end. I can’t usually tell when, until I come …
A large scale work in progress.. It’s a question of what survives and what must give in.
