You are welcome to visit my fine art gallery, where I paint, teach and display my work. You will find a range of my paintings, prints, posters, books and gifts to browse or buy. Places on my painting and drawing classes are sometimes available. My paintings are a response to the beautiful and often stark landscape of The North Pennines - from broad views of the moors and fells, to more intimate views glimpsed through windows in abandoned dwellings. The landscape is littered with the scars of mining and quarrying and I am producing paintings of places as they are slowly being reclaimed by nature. I am constantly amazed at the amount of abandoned dwellings that I keep finding and they are a rich source of inspiration to me.
The landscape and windows paintings are mostly produced in watercolour and I also paint portraits in oil. Commissions are welcome.
