Let me show you some of the world through my art. My art is patiently hand crafted on canvas using acrylic paints and acrylic inks. The art critics have described my unique style as: art cut down to its essence. This page can only give a brief introduction to me and my art.

From: The Building Collection: 40 x 50 cm A back-street St John's Antigua 2010. Such grandeur for a simple kiosk and still my favourite painting.
The world has impressive must-do tourist attractions which are always crowded. People with their digital cameras flocking to the photographic hot-spots and it's always a tussle. All those infuriating panoramic videos slowly being made of a static object! The only alternative is an expensive copyright protected souvenir postcard or two.
Today no artist could ever get to sketch from those hot-spots let alone be allowed to sit and paint from them. Attractions like these have been painted by a plethora of artists' since the beginning of time and I do not wish to add to this pool of sameness.
Away from that hectic world there are other sites simply crumbling away and they will be gone come tomorrow. Here there are no people in the way just fences and vegetation concealing tantalizing glimpses of the past. This is just the starting point for my original art.
From The Miscellaneous Collection: 20 x 60 cm A beach holiday Antigua 2011. It just had to be painted the light, the colour, the pattern.
The Collection pages: Buildings, Doors, Abstracts & Miscellaneous represent a themed retrospective exhibition of my art. My paintings are arranged in rows across the page. The most recent painting is located top left and the oldest painting is located bottom right.
