Recent Artwork

As a multi disciplined artist, my work is very varied however, a common thread, running through most of my artwork, is enviromental issues and the human condition relating to sustainability. Even on plein sketching trips, I will collect found objects and materials found littering woods and streets. Recently, I have extended my practice, researching and incorporating other methodologies such as digital and printed media to journal my walks and collecting. This is in addition to my painting, assemblages and sculpture. Many of my sculptures and furniture are created from metal found objects, recycled engine parts and scrap metal.

Below is some of the recent art I have created but you can also visit my art blog where I regularly post about finished work and work in progress.

And if you like what you see, or would like to commission a work, then please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss your requirements.
