I've been drawing and painting from an early age, initially just for pleasure but mostly as a professional signwriter for the last 30 years. Much of my work has been based on commissions for drawings, signage & decorative paintings, some examples of which can be seen in my
mural Gallery.
           I hope you enjoy looking through my completed projects and I look forward to working with you on your project.
Welcome to my eclectic collection of work!

Examples of my drawings, signwriting, painted wall art & canalware
can be seen at muralBanbury Antiques Centre OX17 1SN

Pet Portraits
I enjoy taking commissions of pets, there are so many different characters. We love them all in our own unique way and I enjoy capturing their character in the mediums I use, be it with pen and ink or paint. As an animal lover and beagle owner I know how they can steal your heart!

Would you like to commission me for a pet portrait?

I like to work from high quality photographs please. You can send as many photos as you think will be helpful. Clear images need to show the fine details of your pet. Photos taken outside are best, not into the sun but with it behind you. Ideal photos are taken on a cloudy bright day where there are no harsh shadows evident. Try to get as close as you can, at their eye level for a head and shoulders portrait. No squinting allowed! You don’t need an expensive camera as most cameras on smart phones will provide good enough images to work from.

Please remember I can only draw what I can see!

Traditional Signwritten Wall Art

Would you like something unique?

I am a self-taught signwriter. There are reportedly around 300 signwriters carrying on the age old tradition of signwriting throughout the UK. With brush and paint in hand we carry out our craft to the marvel of many an onlooker. Shops, churches, boats, pubs, to name but a few. So why not commission your own piece of wall art - framed as a picture to hang on your wall, and help to keep the tradition alive.

DOGS - £75.00 • BLACK & WHITE - £120.00 • MAN CAVE - £85.00
