To be honest, I just like to paint stuff!!
From tiny little stage sets to huge storybook style panels
From quirky detailed portraits to a colourful 1 Metre high fox figure
Art and Illustration:
Iíve played with pastels, watercolours and acrylics in the past. My favourite thing at the moment is an ink and wash technique, for lots of colour and detail. These pictures are painted over multiple layers and spaced apart for added depth and interest
3d ILLUSTRATIONS / Pen & Wash ILLUSTRATIONS / Acrylic ILLUSTRATIONS / Digital Art
I've been lucky enough to exhibit and sell my artwork in regional galleries including Sock in Loughborough and the New Walk Gallery in Leicester. I've taken part in the Loogabarooga Children's illustration festival a couple of times [with writing partner Gary Place] and as artist in residence, I've created 6 foot wide picture book designs for the walls of the wonderful Rainbows Hospice
At the end of 2020, my work was selected for the Fosse Foxes Art Trail to coincide with the opening of Fosse Park West at the start of April 2021. The Trail features 1.3 Metre long fibreglass fox sculptures painted by local artists. My painted fox ĎThe Fox in Socksí celebrates Leicesterís diverse cultural mix, the city's hosiery heritage and beautiful rural setting.
Bespoke Portraits [People, Pubs and Pets]:
With a love of architecture, I paint fun, colourful 3D home portraits with a passion. These portraits are full of detail, they are quirky and as individual as you and your home and are painstakingly hand crafted. Unique and highly personal portraits for the home lover. Simple, friendly collaborative process. If you love your home or love some one who loves theirs, why not call, text or e-mail for a chat? I also paint alternative People portraits and Pet Portraits
SEE ONE FOR YOURSELF. You can see the detail and full 3D effect so much better up close. If you are in the area, why not drop in to the Soar Bridge Inn at Barrow on Soar, the Manor House at Quorn, the Curzon Arms or the Pear Tree Inn at Woodhouse Eaves or Chapel Yard Stores in Staithes, North Yorkshire. Alternatively if you are around Loughborough, let me know and Iíll try to arrange a viewing
