The Big Jump
original, watercolour on heavyweight rag paper, framed.
Inspired by the wildlife of South and Central America.
Leopard Ray Magic, original watercolour on heavyweight rag paper, framed.
Work 2 of 3 in the Enchanted Reef triptych
Explore a slightly surreal coral reef, with leopard like rays swimming over the coral bed. Brightly coloured fish skittishly make their way while others that are a little more camouflaged float with perfect confidence.
There is so much to spot in this painting. A painting where everytime you look at it, you see something new. From jewel like lobsters, florescent fish to the smaller, less strident performers in this ocean scene.
It was a great joy to paint this. A perfect celebration of the joys of what this planet offers in our oceans, reefs, rivers, lakes, mariners. An alien, exotic and wonderful world to discover. A blend of imagination and a passion for the natural world.
Some of the creatures found in these worlds may well be invented, some are real and truly enchanting. Sometimes nature just cannot be beaten in its ore and majesty.
This piece sets out to capture the magic and unknown realms of the ocean. There is still so much for us to learn.
original, watercolour on handmade rag paper, framed.
Inspired by the enchanting wildlife in India. I was lucky enough to travel to Kanha in India, the place that Rudyard Kipling was inspired to write his 'Just So stories'. Even though we were up at dawn and spotted tigers, monkeys, leopards etc; my imagination ran away with me. I couldnt help imagine a scene, when the humans go home, nobody there to capture the magic. The animals come out of the jungle, taking back there jungle...
The Golden Octopus
Inspired by the fun and diversity that can be found in our oceans. Only, in these paintings, I have combined what you would expect to find in fresh water with salt water. A beautiful combination.
These paintings are a mix of dreamlike imagination; and a firm love and appreciation of the natural world. Now more than ever, the wildlife found in our oceans and who we share our planet with should be celebrated and treasured.
My work highlights what we know about the natural world, in the detailed reference I use when I create a painting; but also the mysteries of what we do not know. When I allow my imagination to run wild and invent fascinating spectacles of sights unseen. Only to ever be found in our wildest dreams.
Work 3 of 3 in the Enchanted Reef triptych
A five foot, giant watercolour, celebrating the wildlife found in India.
I only do a few giant paintings like this a year and I absolutely love becoming totally immersed and absorbed in the detail.
Extensive research always to hand; I enjoy intense observation mixed with playful imagination.
English Jungle II, original, watercolour on heavyweight rag paper, framed.
A follow-up to the original English Jungle. Drawing on the characters that can be found in the British countryside.
