Hello and welcome to my website!
After years of practice and training in many different styles and techniques, I have decided to offer my work to all who will appreciate it.
I have become convinced that the love and passion that I place into every piece of art that I create could make someone else happy, and so I have decided to create this online shop from which to sell my artwork.
You will also find my work on: www.artgallery.co.uk
Please enjoy browsing through my pictures.
The Gongbi style is one of delicacy and precision, painting in a style that is much like calligraphic writing. It requires good technique and a lot of patience as it is a highly technical and structured style of painting.
Other Chinese styles, such as Xieyi and Mogu, are considered to depict the spirit of the animal being drawn according to Master Chinese painter Zhang Daqian. The paintings are often very simple, yet highly detailed.
What can be more beautiful than nature herself?
Traditional landscapes, be they in oil, watercolour, or even chalk remain one of the most popular forms of art even in modern times.
Painted portraits capture the quintessential essence of a person in a way that digital photography never can. In this disposable ‘selfie’ culture, there is something reassuring about the permanence of portrait painting.
House portraits are a wonderful gift for any occasion. As long as you can provide me with a good quality photograph of the selected home, I can emphasise (or downplay) certain features to show the house off perfectly.
Another of the ‘traditional’ styles, painting flowers keeps many an artist busy all year round.
Flower paintings capture the grace, texture and colour of the blossom beautifully and naturally.
Cats or Dogs, Snakes or Frogs, we all love our pets with all of our hearts.
What better way of showing off your bond with your special friend than having a painting of them?
Custom drawn or painted images to support meditation. Perhaps you have a ‘safe place’ or a ‘power room’ that you use in meditation? These drawings help those who struggle with ‘visualisation’ in meditations.
Kanji symbols are often considered to be Japanese, but are actually of Chinese origin. Many of the symbols are considered to be powerful and magical and are often presented as gifts to loved ones.
Paintings of the Reiki symbols can help Reiki practitioners who struggle with ‘visualisation’ to see the image during meditation on the symbol. These paintings are also hugely popular among Reiki students and practitioners.
Chinese symbols, like both Kanji and Reiki symbols, are believed to carry powerful magical significance, and as such are very often gifted to loved ones with the wish that the symbol somehow gifts them with that power.
Images from the Qaballah have been popularised by Madonna (amongst others) in recent years and their use, as with other symbols, are believed to carry powerful, magical significance to the bearer of the symbol.
Symbolic of the manifestation of the heavenly Phoenix on Earth, the peacock is one of the Chinese 12 Symbols of Sovereignty and is said to bring luck, fame, public adoration and even rekindle the fires of a dying relationship.
The Coming of Night
Inspired by the turmoil of our daily lives, and by the light that exists within the depths of our hearts, this fictional landscape offers a glimpse into the darker side of our personalities, whilst leaving you with an uplifted feeling.
Finished for the day
The fishing fleet sits forlornly at rest after an active day on the river, their owners asleep at home with their families.
Inspired by the Amazonian tribes in Peru, this picture evokes feelings of a much simpler time.
Light and Dark.
Yin and Yang.
Good and Evil.
This piece was inspired by the opposites that exist in all things. Most people paint flourishing flowers, yet there is equal beauty to be found in the state of decay.
A sister piece to “Decay”, “Flourish” reflects the beauty found in a flourishing plant.
Again done in the Gongbi style, this painting shows the flowering peony in all of it’s glory.
