My relaxed, natural paintings; give a quiet glimpse into the life of the animal. Animal paintings can be very soothing: as they encapsulate the wonder of the animal and can be admired every day. Original works are such a joy to own, as they are a one off, and have that contact with the artist, allowing admiration of the skilled brushwork, colour mixing and compostion. The colours in an original work are much fresher and have a certain radiance, as the eye can appreciate the full range colours and tones.  The story in many of my deep canvases continues around the sides.

Personal viewing of my paintings is recommended to fully appreciate them, by visiting an exhibition, or a wider selection may be viewed at my trade stand Gallery at a variety of local country shows. If you would like to purchase a painting from an Event please contact me to ensure that I take the particular work along, or if you wish to purchase from the website please contact me to confirm that the painting is still available, and for information on payment and delivery.  Happy browsing.
