“The end and beginning of the day are the inspiration for so many of my works, I think I may be turning into a bit of a sun specialist. This piece is of Halong Bay in Vietnam, one of those places that speak straight to your soul. It is, without doubt, one of the top three places I’ve ever been to, in terms of sheer, jaw dropping beauty. As ever with places like this though, that brings its own issues of overcrowding and pollution, which you can read more about is this great article here. We were there in 2009, so it has taken me 10 years to produce a piece of art. I think this is because I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to do it justice.
It was done predominantly in Bic biro, but I’ve also added white oil paint over the top of some areas. This is done to enhance the work, add to the sense of depth and increase the focus on the main subject matter.”
The frames for my smallest works are bought in especially, in order to keep costs as competitive as possible. They are made from Abachi wood, a lightweight hardwood that is perfect for high quality framing.
At present, I can only ship to the UK via the website. I can ship to other destinations, but I’ll need you to get in touch, using the contact me form, for a quote if buying from outside the UK.
All the art I sell is packaged extremely carefully, to keep your painting safe for it’s journey, no matter how far. I have years of experience packaging original artworks for transport to all parts of the world, so you can have faith your unique piece of art will arrive safe and sound. This can take some time, especially with original paintings, however, I aim to ship all art within 2 working days.
