  • Quatre Saisons

    This collage incorporates sections of an old poster advertising a concert of Vivladi’s Quatre Saisons.

  • Les Trois Tantes

    My version of a beautiful large portrait painting of three women, painted in Whistler-like greys and whites.

  • Blue Icon

    The base layer of this painting is a deconstructed pastel and ink collage I did in Gdańsk in 1988 called Birdie Break-out. The shape is reminiscent of the icons I saw trawling the churches of Poland and Russia in the early nineties.

  • Hommage à Braque

    Reminiscent of later work by Georges Braque - his post Cubism paintings and collages.

  • Cherry Moons

    Cherry. Moons.

  • Honesty Box

    Heavily worked and detailed, overlaid with gold pastel and paint.

  • Tipple

    This piece is the first of the diptych Tipple and Topple. Both came out of a revisited  2005 painting called Sweet Shop. Deconstructed, reconstructed and overpainted, they illustrate a playfulness characteristic of much of my work.

  • Topple

    This piece is the partner toTipple. Both came out of a revisited  2005 painting called Sweet Shop. Deconstructed, reconstructed and overpainted, they illustrate a playfulness characteristic of much of my work.

  • Duped

    The base layer of this painting is entirely made up of maps of Africa. Just one tiny piece is taken from another continent.

  • Thanks to You, Martin B

    This used to be a vertical painting, the earlier version being Zaspa Flats, painted in 1999 in Poland. Returning to the piece in sunnier Devon, I first turned it on its side, then coated it in Cerulean Blue, stencilling out half-circle shapes. Thanks to You, Martin B is an acknowledgement to Martin Bedford, friend and artist who loved the colour!

  • Dreams of Spring

    Scottish winters, when do they end? …. A reference also to the rhythms of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. This is the first half of the diptych with Rites of Spring.

  • Rites of Spring

    A celebration of a long-awaited glimpse of spring in Scotland. …. And reference to the rhythms of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. This is the second part of the diptych with Dreams of Spring.

  • Eszther’s ‘Life of a Fish’

    My Hungarian friend Eszther named this painting.

  • Stone Circles

    Stone-like colours emanating from faded paper layers; rough textures and patterns from a base of corrugated card.

  • Fooling the Bird
