Paintings in oils
Paintings in oils
Eaton Ford, St Neots

Most of my paintings are in oils, a medium unsurpassed for luminosity and intensity of colour.

My subject matter is varied, from the coastal scene in Suffolk or Cornwall to portraits and the figure.  Currently I am working on still-life subjects in a modern realism style, not harking back to masters of the past nor aiming to reproduce photography of the present. Instead, within the confines of two dimensions, I try to make my paintings as colourful and fresh as life.

My early training and career was in cartography, where precision is the key, so I see accurate drawing as the starting point in all my work.

My paintings find buyers from all over the UK and my work is also in homes in Australia, USA, Norway and Ireland.
