Your time frame and or a budget?

Every painting receives my best effort, I can work very fast however, good painting takes thought, planning and time, great painting takes longer so were possible allow as much time as possible.

I recommend you get in touch as soon as possible, that helps us both.

I appreciate all clients have a budget which includes cost and time.
I understand keeping to a budget.
Clients are always consulted where unusual costs may be incurred.

Painting prices shown here assume a ‘normal’ scene, complex scenes take longer so best is we discuss what you have in mind.

You will be in safe, experienced hands, as my resumeé shows, I have been honoured to be the choice of many distinguished individuals and famous companies.

Which ever course you choose, be reassured, for you this will be a fun and fascinating experience.

The mystery of paintings

Hazlerigg (a Moody 31), Commissioned as a Christmas SurprisePhotographs and video are miraculous (my original training was photography).  However if you really want to make a mark then no other picture  is more impressive than a good painting from a first class artist. Your paintings speak about you, few things make a home or offices look more stylish than very good paintings.
The rooms are given uplift.

People notice the aura without their even looking at the paintings.


Paintings convey authority and integrity to the rooms in a way which no other furnishings can, challenging the imagination of all who see them.

Fine paintings arouse conversations and give pleasure and value every time you are near them.

“Firstly I have to say that I feel privileged to hold them.
They feel immensely precious, and I feel being with the originals rather overwhelming”.


Clive . R. King wrote (owner of King of Hearts): “It is already giving me great pleasure and reminds me to make more time available for the joy of sailing”  and Clive King commissioned a second painting of his next boat.

“Your painting of HMS Pickle opened my eyes to what painting can do”, Peter Goodwin, when Curator of HMS Victory, H.M. Naval Base, Portsmouth. Today Peter is a distinguished author with 17 naval books to his credit.
