A Rare Sighting
This lovely creature is indeed a very rare sighting on these Maltese islands unfortunately. I have used a mixture of wax resist and transparent paint to capture the grace and sheer magic of the moment as she swam past me, almost hidden by her camouflage.
Anemonies and Patterns
Everyone loves poppies! This is an almost abstract view that caught my eye and imagination one day whilst walking the dog.There was a whole field of poppies, aen mass and I couldn’t get home fast enough to paint them!
Big Sky Country Norfolk
This painting, after a painting by Edward Seago, is a study of the immense dramatic skies we experienced on our recent visit to Norfolk. I have changed a few of the details to suit my own “take” on the sky, mine has many very subtle changes especially in the darks, which have not really been picked up by the photogragh.
Bridge of Sighs
Seen from a very unusual perspective this is a completely unique ‘take’ on the Bridge of Sighs! It has an emotional response to the bridge and was painted in response to paintings by the famous Russian artist Kokoshka of the River Thames.
This was inspired by my memories of our house on a steep hillside in Cornwall, cloud skudding across the hill created deep shadow set against bright sun light behind our house.
Deep in the Kelp Forest
People who have never dived cannot comprehend the spectacular beauty of the colours and variety of underwater life. The explosions of colours in this painting express my joy when diving.
Driftwood, Wines and Words
I certainly had a fantastic time painting this with mixed media, using a variety of media, water colour, gouache, acrylic and oil pastel to build up a feeling of depth, of being in a deeply wooded area, which was where I found many of the shapes used in the painting.

Even Grey Days Have Moments
I have always challenged myself to sketch something and to paint a picture everyday. This is the very best way for an artist to improve their work. These small paintings, mostly in oils, are some of the results of my endeavours. Painted on gessoed mountboard, these tiny paintings were a real challenge, as it is far easier to work on a large surface in an expressive way.
