Archive - Examples of Previous Work

Before our move to the Borders in 2010 I worked from my "Studio & Workshop" in Kirkburton near Huddersfield in West Yorkshire and exhibited my work in local galleries.


  • "Boothhouse Gallery" Holmfirth
  • "No. 11" Holmfirth
  • Annual Holmfirth Art Exhibition
  • The Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield


Periodically I travelled north to the Borders to exhibit work at "buyDesign Gallery".

The Boothhouse Gallery owned by the Potter; Jim Robison. (a triptych on the top left - with other paintings)
"Storm over the Eildon Hills"

I experimented with heavily textured canvas surfaces and impasto paint.  I added mixed media to the basic acrylic paint producing moody and dark skies.


I have kept this painting to remind me of this particular series of work.


Dark & Moody!


It will be for sale in August of 2013.


No it will not! Sold today out of the Blue, 7 July 2013!!

"Skyline Thurgory"
"Rising Cloud and approaching Snow"
"Experiment in High Tone"
Another moody & atmospheric "Thurgory"
"Skyline Storm"

A production of small canvasses with experiments and studies of clouds.


These to lead on to larger pieces of work.

Rising Cloud series, inspired by the clouds rising on Saddleworth Moor observed from trains on frequent travels across the Pennines to Manchester.
Rising Cloud Study
"The Eildon Hills"

The local Yorkshire landscape provided me with much inspiration but I was drawn more by the "big skies" of the Borders.


More of my work was guided by observation during our frequent visits to "Southernknowe" in Ancrum and I began to paint more Border landscapes.

"The Eildons"
"Ruberslaw in Winter from above Ancrum"
"Ruberslaw -Land of Counterpane"
"A North Sea Coast"

All the above paintings have been sold or in a few cases overpainted, waste not want not!
