Welcome to my web site.

I am an artist working with paint, either oils or acrylics, on canvas and watercolour on paper, and drawing with all sorts of different media. As well as painting I make prints, mostly etching with some silkscreen lino-relief and mono prints. I find that the two areas of painting and printmaking overlap and though very different are also complementary. If a painting equates to a novel, then an etching is more like a poem, with its own unique range of marks and textures.

My experiences are part of what I paint and this is how I make sense of the world. Greece is a country where I once lived and this permeates my work as does land/sea scape, music and poetry, gardens and archaeology. I have divided my work into subject areas, as I am always using imagery from the outside world even when it springs from the imagination.

All the paintings and prints on this website are in England. Various companies and private individuals have commissioned work and I am always interested to discuss ideas and projects and welcome visitors to my studio to see recent work. Some of my paintings are big, others less so, some use the form of diptych or triptych and many incorporate windows as part of the composition.

Most of my pictures are available for purchase and prices range from £75 for small etchings to £2,750 for big paintings. Prints are supplied unframed and can be posted by Special Delivery in a sturdy tube to arrive next day. Paintings and watercolours include simple frames and can be sent by carrier. Contact me for details and prices.
