*** New Virtual Gallery: "2015, A year in the life of a nobody" ***
From time to time I like to do a virtual gallery of my work and as the end of the year is fast approaching I thought I'd do a new one. I have just uploaded an eclectic selection of 20 of my works from 2015. I think this selection more or less encompases my various styles and subjects and all of the works were produced in 2015. There's a mix of painterly works, more photographic works, abstracts, surreal works, landscapes, riverscapes and some photo-blends
I take photographs because I really enjoy photography. I endeavour to create digital art because I LOVE art.
Born and living in London UK. I am a fine art photographer and digital artist. My late Mother was very artistic and my father's very musical so it's perhaps no surprise that my main interest has always been in the arts and music. My art is often a bit "out there", a bit "quirky" it's just the way that my brain is wired, the way that "I am".
I think that creating a piece of art is a bit like experimental cooking, add a pinch of this, a dash of that, until one is satisfied with the end result, that's why I don't have a single recipe or style. I'm always experimenting with new ideas and techniques, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't, but I always learn something new along the way and that is what keeps me coming back for more.
I work in a variety of different styles and techniques. Some of my works such as "Adoration of the swan" , "Tea on the lawn" and "A pew with a view" are in a technique that I call photo-blend where I will take various photos and "blend" them together into a single work. Another of my techniques is a painterly style as shown in works such as "Riverview" and "Street Scenic". whilst "Street Cafe" , "Bike onboard" and "Skateboard Park" are all examples of some of my more colourful surrealistic works.
I currently sell most of my work on ArtPal.com and Pixels.com. You can choose from a range of print sizes, paper types or canvass and framing options and they will dispatch the work directly to you. Below are links to some of my works for sale on ArtPal..

Hope you enjoy my work,
