My latest collection of paintings are illustrative and narrative, they often contain symbols and ancient art forms to tell the story.

I'm working on paper, using pen and ink, and then acrylic inks together with gold foil gilding and stitch. The work can be viewed on on the webpage 'works on paper'. My favourite works can be seen as enlargements. All work on paper is for sale and prices are around £200 to £300 depending on size and framing requirements.

My studio is in a shared attic at Muspole Street Studios, off Duke Street in Norwich. Visitors are welcome to visit the studio to view this new work on paper together with the back catalogue of works on canvas as shown on this website, please use the Contact page on this website to arrange to call in.

Work in progress

It's been tricky this summer keeping the work flow going as I've moved house from Norwich to Horning in the Norfolk Broads. So much packing and unpacking to do. So much in the house and garden to sort out. The Muspole Street studio has been a sanctuary in the midst of all the chaos at home and has been a pleasure to visit, even if it has been only a few hours in the day.

I managed to finish this painting however, and it is about to be glazed and framed with a double mount this week. The tree through the window is an amazing specimen tree I found growing in Minorca. It is known as the Silk Floss Tree, or more correctly, Ceiba speciosa. I spent a pleasant afternoon in Minorca sketching the tree a few years ago and was interested to see what looked like three specimen trees growing in the gardens of Auckland airport this year.
