Realist and Surrealist Painter

Hello and welcome. I hope my paintings put a smile on your face. This is my main motivation for painting - to bring a bit more joy to the world. I take inspiration from all sorts of places including my travels, nature, stories, and symbology across time and cultures. Most of my work is a mash up of the surrealist and visionary genres informed with sketching and painting still lifes. You can find me outside painting when the weather is nice.

Originally from Devon in the UK, I now live in Jylland in Denmark with my girlfriend and her growing cat collection.

I mainly paint in acrylics and oils as I like depth of colour, as well as the flexibility of techniques and tools available to express ideas.

Do you have a mural you'd like painted, or a project you'd like to explore? Send me a message and tell me about it!
