August Shows

I had planned on August being my most quiet month until November. A mini break between shows. While I was planning that, life just laughed and laughed at me. If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you’d know that I update this site regularly. Definitely weekly. I’m active […]

Dead Is The New Sexy – Part 2

If you haven’t seen part 1 of this painting, you need to go here. With this piece I went off in new ways and struggled with doing new things. I wanted to push my art further into the impressionist style. It’s hard transitioning to a new style but also so worth […]

Put Some Pants On!

  When I buy booze, I look for bottles with good graphic design. Colours, shapes, fonts all make the difference for me in choosing. The fact that I’m more than willing to try new things also helps. With my background in illustration and graphic design, design matters. Why the hell […]

The Moment

This was the last painting in the series. Ostensibly the easiest painting of the three. But… not really. I have never actually painted a building before. Or at least one that was central to the composition. I have a lot of years of drawing and perspective which make all the […]

Disbelief

I can’t always say what moves me. A lot of my art comes out as a surprise. Would I have pegged myself as being beach and water obsessed? No. But most of my encaustic work focuses exactly on that. In this case, I knew I needed to do something Sherlock […]
