My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

    Boats are my next favourite thing after Lancs!! Nicely done…I like the cloud work too.

  • Hi Estelle
    This painting was inspired by van Gogh’s “Boats at Saintes-Maries” (1888) using a photo I’d taken on holiday.
