The Aether Worlds series has now developed into a total of 12 paintings and 18 planets...I find the use of oil paint to create different effects absolutely fascinating and the "Aether Worlds" series has given me a great "blank canvas" to work out methods using palette knives and the dynamic results that can be achieved... and a few brushes here and there.
After the initial series of "The Mechanical Paradise", I continued this theme with new paintings "Andromeda" and "Terpischore". These paintings use a different design and layout, full figures integrated with the clockwork AI, within an interior cut off from the natural world that lies beyond.
I initiated a new series of oil paintings, just as the London lockdown started in spring of 2020. "The Mechanical Paradise" uses techniques derived from the old masters to create these surreal faces, combining heads with elaborate clockwork mechanisms and AI.
Thanks to everyone who made it down to the Talented Art Fair at the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane this weekend. I loved chatting to you about my work, and was kind of surprised that so many art lovers were there, especially under the current conditions !
New prints of drawings on acrylic glass blocks. These freestanding Acrylic Blocks stand stably on any flat surface. The crystal clear acrylic gives the artwork an impressive 3D depth effect and doesn’t need any additional supports, stands or hardware.

This new series of abstract landscape oil paintings expands on similar themes developed in the "Supernature" series of abstract landscape paintings, and uses palette knives instead of brushes to create effects with the oil paint itself.
It was a real pleasure to take part in Art on a Postcard this year. They invite artists do donate – yep, Art on a postcard to raise money for the Hepatitis C charity. After the November auction I received this email from Chris who placed the winning bid on one of the little oil […]
This November I am having an Open studio at the converted arch in Muswell Hill, that I've been working in over the last few years. In fact I'm giving it a complete refurb, as we have increased the amount of space that we will use and I'll be whitewashing the interior and organising my paintings, drawings and prints with a lot more wall space to display works to visitors and collectors, so looking forward to unveiling all of this ! I'll have a few glasses of wine, coffee and soft drinks / nibbles for visitors and I'm hoping to make it all quite social...
