Welcome to my online fine art gallery
My online art gallery has been on the Internet since 1996 and has won several awards. I hope you enjoy my original paintings and prints.
I have been painting since adolescence when I read books, owned by my father, about the techniques of the great masters. In particular a book about the post-impressionists piqued my interest due to the use by these artists of vibrant colours and interesting compositions.
The arts in all their forms are nourishment for the soul. There are some things in life which we have to do. The arts, on the other hand, fall into the sphere of what we want to do.
Creativity lives in all of us whether or not we have discovered how to channel it. I wish you well in your journey.
I am always available for commissions when requested but do remember my location in northern England.
