Welcome

Pennine artist painting vibrant, atmospheric oils. I'm inspired by the wild outdoors, freedom and adventure. I paint seascapes and racing action; mountain, moorland & forest landscapes.

I enjoy commissions; please contact me directly to discuss options! Pet portraits are usually in pencil, watercolour or pastel on paper; special places or events usually in oils on canvas. I'm happy to accommodate your preferences and purpose for the artwork.

Original paintings and signed, limited edition prints of some images are available to buy on my website and linked to Paypal for online purchases. Orders will be despatched within 14 days.

Where my paintings are in exhibitions, the galleries control sales. Online purchases of these paintings are usually possible via the gallery website/s, especially whilst Covid-19 lockdown continues to affect us.

I've now submitted my entries for the Royal Society of Marine Artists' 2020 exhibition. Something new for me: harbour scenes with lots of fishing boats. I was really inspired by my visit to Pittenweem on the Fife coast on a blazing hot day last summer; these two paintings are the result.

Covid-19 put paid to my planned expedition to the Norwegian Arctic for inspiration, and a subsequent solo exhibition! I couldn't use my studio at all for about 8 weeks, but am back working in there again now.

I still have four paintings in what became the lockdown exhibition at The Jetty Gallery, Oban. They have me featured on their website and all the paintings are available online at thejettygallery.com 

I've now got a wide selection of paintings at my studio, or that I can access. I've updated my listings for availability; I had to collect my paintings from Dancing Light as that gallery is now closed until they find new premises.

Please feel free to contact me direct if you're unsure how to buy a particular painting, or want to know where you can view it.
