I like my art to tell a story, something happened before this moment in time and something will happen after. It is up to you, the viewer to complete the story from the clues.
I have a family of characters that regularly pop up in my paintings, Betty the bingo player, Len the Lighthouse keeper and Dave the Dog to name a few.
Watercolours can range from traditional paintings to cartoon pen and wash, In my Acrylics I often use mixed media to create a 3D image as in Betty the Big Bottomed Bingo Player. In this painting I built up texture from builders filler, gold leaf, jewels and battery operated lights around her sign.
I use oils as a pure medium and are often more traditional landscapes and seascapes. Pastels, pencils and pen work are all dry mediums and I tend to use them for animal and people portraits and some scenes. See the top of the page for examples of my work.
I'm often criticized about my paintings having the look of lots of different artists because I can paint in different styles, subjects and mediums but I am proud of having the ability to be able to do this and teach it in my classes. My cartoons are all my work, all from my head and there's many more where they came from.
Illustrations are a part of my work I am proud of. It is a joy to see your work in print.
Here are some examples:
