Welcome to my online gallery, where you can browse a selection of my work produced over the last six decades.


I'm very pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of my first book, Visual Contemplations, details of which can be found in the Artist tab, above. Some of the paintings featured in the book can be viewed in the Gallery tab.

The book is available at the special pre-publication price of £15 here


"In my experience, making art has always been a natural process – like breathing – except on a longer time scale.  The first half of your life is spent  'inhaling' all that is relevant to your work from the world around you in order to build up a repertoire of subjects, and learning various vocabularies which can best express them.

Then in the latter half comes the really interesting part – where your art can begin to 'exhale' all that you have absorbed – but now enriched by the emotions and experiences you've accumulated in the course of a lifetime.

In this, my second phase, I am casting a long look over my past history as an artist, drawing from each period the most important aspects which can still feed my current work, and returning to these subjects in order to perfect them.  It's a kind of Proustian 'remembrance of things past', where in memory, the event or subject is distilled  and crystallized – stripped of everything but its essentials."
