About This Work

Turquoise War Bonnet started as a different idea but developed into this finished product.It’s what I intended it to be in the end, based on the beautiful turquoise feathers warn by some native American Indian chiefs in the 19th century although only a few actually did.The painting is on all sides so can be hanged on the wall as it is or framed.Hope you enjoy it.



Chanoyu is a type of Japanese tea ceremony which is what this painting represents in my eye.Maybe something completely different in yours.It is incredibly difficult to get the colours exact when taking the photo of the painting, so to help this is done with high quality acrylic paint in turquoise, perm red-violet light, metallic gold and black and white.I hope you enjoy.

Roar-Shack – get it?

This is my latest addition to my now ever growing pile of paintings. I think I have done so many now that MoMa would find it hard to fit them all in.

I just can’t help myself….

So here is my latest painting, without further ado.

Twisted Tango

This is the first time in a very long time that I have created a painting of such proportion and I can’t tell you how much I missed the ability to express my freedom, dancing on the canvas once again.

If I had more money and perhaps a studio, I would be painting like this more often. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Welcome to my world.
