WelcomeWelcome to my website. In the menu above you will find links to where you can buy my work and read my blog. I use two main sites to fulfil my print orders, Pictorem and RedBubble.

I work from my art studio looking out over fabulous views of the Italian countryside. I use a variety of techniques for my work but I specialise in photo art, also known as photo painting.  My aim is to create art that you will enjoy having in your home as fine art prints or on interior decor products.

My Art

welcomeArt subjects vary from travel images to cat and dog portraits. Central Italy, London, the South East of England, Copenhagen, Marrakesh in Morocco and Madeira in Portugal all feature. I love creating digital abstracts and with the colour ranges I use there is something for everyone – at my Pictorem store you can choose your wall art according to your room colour.  I have some beautiful floral works available as well as classic cars, motorcycles and Samurai armour. As you can see I have quite an eclectic collection that is worth browsing through.

My Writing

I am a keen storyteller and write a blog including my thoughts on art, living in Italy and various short stories. I believe strongly in having fun with what you are doing and I am really enjoying creating art and storytelling. It is very fulfilling to be able to combine my art and writing – welcome to my world!

My Aim

I aim to promote life, work and energy balance through my art, poetry and writing. Promoting the use of art for enhancing the mood of the environment in which a piece of art sits is an important focus for my work.

If you are looking for something specific get in touch and ask me if I have it available or could produce it for you. My work is available for licensing, just contact me to discuss your ideas.

You can get in touch with me directly by sending a message via my Facebook page.
