I hold a H.Dip in Fine Art, from the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, London, training under theatre designer and painter, Yolanda Sonnabend amongst others. Scroll down to bottom to see larger gallery.

Most are created partially in the studio, after the initial ‘plein air’ drawing response. Please allow for slight variations on tone for device screens and digital imaging capture.
The oil prices range up to £130-1300. Prices shown give a indication of value. Watercolours range £100 up to – £300 for larger.

Any recent works below or on my instagram, oils need at least 10-14 days to touch dry before varnishing if on wood; on stretched canvas ideally at least 2-3 months to dry before varnishing and delivery. Works can be reserved for up to 1 week. I tend to keep my other work on paper for future reference but there maybe exceptions on enquiry.
Payment by cash on collection, cleared cheque or transfer only. If you send in your email, I can keep you informed of venues where my selected work can be seen.
My philosophy of painting is to develop the journey from a figurative basis towards an semi-abstracted finish. My sketchbook work can be viewed in more detail on instagram, also see home page links.
