Hello and welcome to my old site. Thanks for visiting! Please look around and enjoy yourself. Inside you'll find paintings, animations, Illustrations -and a few surprises.
I currently keep an up to date 'blog' of illustrations - which are my latest works. You can see them here if you like.
The painting pages now contain seventeen pages of indexed images. They catalogue much of my recent work and I hope you enjoy browsing through them.
Of the works you will find here, some are already in private collections, some are for sale- and some of the paintings are merely there for fun.
My most recent paintings are here.
Apologies, I just noticed googlepages has gargled the site thumbnails (aaarggggh!). You can still look at most of the paintings if you click the title.

Update March 5th 2009
Well, in the next few weeks I'll be having a show with Robert Birch and Sieglinde Battley - which is exciting to say the least. Both Bob and Siggy are international artists of widely held esteem and I've been painting hard to keep up my part of the show....
The show is at the John Paynter Gallery in Hunter Street Newcastle and opens on Black Friday, 13th March.
You can see some of the work that will be hung in the show here:
I've also made a small linking website so you can check out Bob and Siggy's biographies and paintings.
Hope to see you on opening night at 6.00 pm!

In the next few weeks the delightful painter Patricia Williamsz, the well known sculptorTom Ireland and myself will be having a show at the NAS gallery. You can find a copy of the invitation here So please come along! Opening night is Friday 10th Ocober. There is a map on the invitation.
I will be updating this site as more paintings come from the studio. I am presently working on a series of French landscapes and they will be up soon.
In a nutshell: Six weeks in France was good. Full of cheese and red wine and soft light. What else could a painter ask for? (apart from a good juicy tube of Cadmium Orange).
On an entirely different note, I've just had the honour of being the feature artist in an online magazine. It's pretty exciting to get your work on the cover of a magazine! You can download it here.
As for the "Seven Painters" our show last year was an oustanding success - for both the "Seven Painters" group and myself. In addition to several private collections, one painting went to the Historical Trust that represents the Lock Up historical area; another went to the Newcastle Grammar School. (So I guess I am represented in "Public Collections").
I've made a small video of the "Seven Painters"" work set to Vivalldi. You can watch it here if you like.
many, many cheers
