I design and paint bespoke murals by commission, for residential or commercial premises. I do this either in situ or on canvas in my studio to be installed in the location at a later date. Murals are painted either in oils or acrylics, depending on the requirements of the client and are protected with a durable varnish. Whether it's just a small embellishment or a full room makeover, I am always happy to discuss ideas and offer advice at no extra cost. Paint finishes and decorative art for furniture are also available. Please contact me for further details.

I am an accomplished portraitist, working mainly in oils, pencil and charcoal. I work from life and from photographs and offer to come and take the required photo should a suitable one not be available. In current circumstances, I would preferably work from photos only. If a sitting is required, it would need to be carried out at the client's home, observing all the current distancing rules. Mask not necessary! :-)

I build handmade scale models and dioramas, applying a high level of precision and attention to detail to create accurate individual pieces or entire scenes in miniature. Each piece is made by hand, using traditional methods and reclaimed materials wherever possible.
