The mountains I had to climb make it back into the studio…
I began this new piece, which was originally drafted in charcoal on 15th August 2022, my 50th birthday! I know right!? I like to start a new work on my birthday and at Christmas; Solstices and Equinoxes may also be used as an excuse to do this. Why I think I still need an excuse…
As a Matter of Fact…it’s all about Fiction; NEW paintings!
My latest offerings are painted in acrylic on loose canvas. I was responding to the crazy alien times in which we find ourselves. Surreal, virtual, dystopian…and curiously flat!! (Sugar comedown!?)

LARGE Abstractions: In The Pink!

It’s all gone pink and black and boxy!
It’s all gone pink and black again! What’s on? The World Now = A time of extreme contrast between love and despair, isolated in our little boxes, we all feel the same things, all have the same available colours and textures, all expressed in different ways. All surrounded by highways of love? Maybe? Whatever it…
New Abstract Art
In the weirdness of the lockdown, I have managed to really knuckle down to some new work. It’s deeper and more resilient than ever before! Hope you enjoy it! Please leave a like and check back soon for more.
Wet Paint: Love Melts Walls – acrylic on canvas – Fresh Original Studio Art!
Quick…its dripping graffiti! Literally just made this. The paint is still wet. I’m going to ask £150 for this one!
Today’s Painting Progress; Dingly dell, or something!?
The only question is, how deep does it want to go?
