I've been painting for about 20 years, and am self-taught. I mostly make use of acrylics as a medium, painting on canvas board, or on box canvases. Sometimes I work with watercolours. I specialise in fine art portraits, but also paint landscapes and wildlife scenes.

My speciality is creating a shallow depth of field effect on canvas. This creates depth to the painting by varying the degree of focus throughout the painting. This technique works well for portraits, and certain types of still-life. I also enjoy working with quite strong colours, which is ideal with acrylic as a medium.

My portraits often feature models from around the world, who kindly give me permission to create elegant paintings based upon images from their modelling portfolios. My thanks go to the many friends I have made through these projects, as well as to the professional photographers I have collaborated with.

There are a number of links to further pages of my work, including my popular murals, which appear in schools, hospitals and homes in Gloucester, England. There's also a page showcasing my bespoke commercial work, which appears in brochures for schools. Other work has been used for album covers, and books covers.

I am Chairman of Cheltenham's annual 'Art in the Park' event, and I am the webmaster of www.cheltenham-art.com and www.gardensgallery.co.uk. I am also a published novelist and science writer, and have appeared on television, radio and in numerous magazines.

You can see my work in the waiting room at Norfolk House Dental Surgery, London Road, Gloucester.
