Original Oil Paintings

About Me


I'm a professional artist based in Rochester in Kent.  I have a small art studio where I love to sit and paint in the peace and quiet - where my soul can be still. I agree with Marc Chagall that "art must be an expression of love or it is nothing". My art is an expression of my love of life, happiness and sharing with others. 

My Medium


I work in oils and my paintings are produced on canvas (traditional, deep edge and canvas board/panel).  All paintings receive a coat of professional varnish for protection from fading and other environmental factors.  Each painting is provided in a complimentary handmade wooden frame, ready for you to hang.

My Inspiration


 The subject matter of my work is diverse as I find endless inspiration in nature, people, animals and architecture. I love vibrant colour and my work is inspired by all the beautiful people, places and things I observe in everyday life.  My aim is to produce positive and inspirational paintings for people to enjoy.
