People and landscapes fascinate me. I like to not only make people see the city in a new light but also the people around them. Every time that I walk through a street there is something interesting and different, it is never the same, not even for a minute.  I like to paint buildings that you never normally see, the complicated back buildings behind a classic facade, the rooftops and those very top floor windows that you would never normally notice.

Through my paintings I want people to appreciate the beauty around them everywhere and also the characters within it, it is our city, town or street and we make it what it is.

I use watercolour and a dip pen and ink to create my paintings, the most complicated part of making a painting is working out and laying down the recognisable structures within a scene. Once this is done I find the painting process very therapeutic and by far my favourite part is adding the people to the paintings, I like to make up little stories and certain characters may recur throughout my paintings. When people commission me I enjoy making them a part of the picture and adding the things which are important to them, it makes the painting so much more personal and special to them.


Will undertake commissions
