My artwork is personal, absorbing  the influences around me.  The most important being the people that have been at these places throughout history to the present day.  That is why every painting must be started on site with a knowledge of its history and meeting the people that visit today. There is soul and emotion in these places, whispering of times past present and hopefully future. I love the vibrancy and detail of Pre-Raphaelite paintings, spontaneity of Impressionist and romance of Jack Vettriano.

Three Suns of York

hree Sun’s were seen at Mortimer`s cross on the morning of 2nd of Feb 1461- the morning of an important battle which would help Edward IV become King. The appearance of the Three Sun’s frightened Edward’s troops, although he convinced them that God was on their side as this was a sign of the Holy Trinity. Later Edward used the Three Sun’s as his symbol “The Sun in Splendour”. It was thought that the Sun’s represented himself and his two brothers George and Richard III, the three Son’s of York!
