Originals

My original work is produced on a variety of media, including acrylic, oil, and oil pastels on canvas and wood.

My original art work falls into two categories: portraits and murals.

Portraits

I produced these portraits to give myself a new challenge and to celebrate Timothy Spall, a briiliant actor and a wonderful human being. Tim buys my work and insisted on having one of the skies in his hospital room when he was fighting a serious illness.

Murals

In 2004 I was commissioned by the head teacher of Newlyn's Infant and Junior school to design and help the pupils paint the walls of the staircase of the new infant extension. Based on the ideas and wishes of the pupils for jungle animals, we were able to realize the design very successfully. 200 pupils
contributed their skills and continue to be very proud of the result. (See Newlyn 10 and 11).

Out of that project came a new commission to design and paint five exterior walls of the school, which were completed in the summer of 2006. (See Newlyn1-9)

It was one of the most enjoyable commissions I've ever done.

The private commission was for the summer home of a family from Athens, Greece.

The Texas Embassy Cantina in Cockspur Street, London SW1 initially commissioned me for its opening in 1996. It's a continuing process as new ideas from the owners emerge.
