As a school boy, my first love was art. My second was for motor cycles and cars. And then I travelled the world.
It was a chance meeting with in a small French village that rekindled long lost passions. I had never thought about putting it all together until a French print maker, Charlotte Massip encouraged me to indulge in art museums, galleries and even a circus.
I was recaptured by the classic French artists and inspired by the colours of the Impressionists such as Matisse and Cezanne. I remembered the works of Realist twentieth century American artists, such as Edward Hopper, that had first turned my head.
I picked up a brush again and began to paint, combining everything I admired onto canvas.
The result is as you see; paintings of cars and motor cycles, American street scenes that illustrate a nostalgic sentiment for times when, in my imagination, things seemed better.
A year later my work has developed into a more versatile adaption of my own style and the desires of clients.
If you wish to discuss your ideas for a commission then please do not hesitate to contact me.
My eternal thanks to Charlotte for her encouragement and patience.
