Hello! Here's some bumpf about me... I spent more than twenty years in the creative industries working on entertainment programmes, talk shows, documentaries, animations and a children’s novel. But creating original and innovative art is my true passion. My latest work celebrates the beauty of the city through the shapes, outlines and colours that define its character. London, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, Miami, Paris and Dubai all feature in my portfolio. The art is created by digitally manipulating and colouring my own photographs to produce unusual prints on aluminium, reclaimed wood, brass, even 1930’s copper-lite windows. I also create neon, magnetic, and L.E.D installations. The metal pieces are printed on very thin sheets of brushed aluminium, giving the work an etched appearance. l work out of my studio at Wimbledon Art Studios in South London. I am represented by Degree Art. Recent exhibitions include The Affordable Art Fair (Battersea, Hampstead, Singapore, New York, Milan), The Other Art Fair (New York, LA, London), and The Open Studios Show at Wimbledon Art Studios. Having had 8 exhibitions cancelled due to the pandemic I'm delighted to announce my next exhibtion. A River Runs Through It is back. And this time it's virtual. Join us for our fifth London-inspired art show, online from September 2-6th. The five artists will be unveiling their new London-art collections in a virtual version of London's Oxo Gallery, alongside a programme of talks, interviews and a chance to win some great London prizes, raising money for the inspirational London's Air Ambulance.
