The artist’s website

His works have a reflective, shimmering quality in which glimpses of trees, ponds, rivers, skies, and other natural imagery seem to come into focus and then disappear as one gazes at his work. His landscapes are not about simple melodies; they become, like a successful jazz session, infused with spiritual energy and a barely restrained sexuality.

Works and biography

His subjects are landscapes from around the world including Britain, Scandinavia and the United States. His paintings combine elements of traditional European landscape painting with his own distinctive style, thick layers of paint and dynamic washes of colour.
