Photos of the Playboy Exhibition

  • Even though I was out of town for the launch night, the exhibition was a huge success and it was nice to be up there with the likes of D*Face, Eine, Evan Hecox, and Gerald Laing. We are in talks for a further exhibition in October. But in the meantime here are some photos of the show. If you would like to be kept up to date on any future shows please email

    • The Shard #IconicLondon

      • Following on form the Battersea work I completed recently I am really happy with this piece. I am not sure what it is I love about it so much but I feel it is balanced both in composition and in colour.

        The use of a gold background really sets of the contrast of the cadmium red.

        The angles, shape and form are very in tune with where my art is at the moment and this piece would look good in any commercial space or lounge which is where...

          • The power of social media never ceases to amaze.

            I came across this amazing blog by Jon and Tina Reid who’s ambition is to photograph London in a year and write a photographers dream guide book containing inside tips and tricks of the best way of photographing London in 2013.

            Having been completely bowled over by his awesome photos of battersea I contacted him directly to see if he would be happy to collaborate with me on something...

            • In the Studio #2

              Architecture 2
              • Following on from the abstract architecture theme I am working on I am excited to show you this painting as it developed.

                It is amazing how a painting can change each week. That is the beauty of underpainting and over painting. Oils are so rich and versatile.

                Here are a series of snaps showing you how a couple of my paintings have progressed. They are now nearly finished and will update soon.

              • In the Studio #1

                Abstract Architecture Detail
                • At the moment I am exploring using architecture as inspiration for my art. I am building up a body of work that will be on show in February / March next year.

                  Buildings and Commercial spaces are so inspiring. The use of colour, texture, angles all combine to create something special and unique and I enjoy extracting this personality and turning it into art.

                  I have already created a number of works which I will show you here. But watch...

                • The Art of Oil & Water

                  Close up Oil & Water
                  • The piece I have just completed has sparked a lot of interested on twitter and facebook so I thought I would upload it here also. Watercolour was the first medium I ever loved and this painting has renewed my passion for it!

                    Apparently it is one of the hardest mediums to master. I love the way you can add layer upon layer,  creating difference in colours as you do so.

                    This is the first of a pair I am doing on oil rigs. The 2nd one...
