Tragedy of war, inspired by Picasso’s Guernica, I often watch the news and see scenes of people’s lives destroyed by war, and I often think how do people live with such devastation, fear and chaos.
In Tragedy of war, you have the warlord with his girl, cigar and glass of wine enjoying power, power over peoples’ lives as he alone holds the key to life or death.
I painted it in black, white and grey I wanted it dark, I wanted it moody I wanted it to explain the tragedy of war. I want you to see something different every time you look at it; I want it to hold your imagination.

Over the last few months, the world has indeed gone mad, and my heart goes out to all those who are affected and sadly lost their life because of Coronavirus.
My family and I have been in self-imposed lockdown for a while now only going out for food shopping, I buy all my oils and canvases online most of my oils coming from the UK, and I am well stocked on both and aim to keep on painting
I wanted a little humour in my work and had this in mind when I painted Going going gone and Steak and chips I think they highlight some of the madness we are experiencing at the moment.
I have been heartened that my works are still selling, In the last few weeks, I have sent my work to the UK, to the East & West coast of America, Germany, Singapore, Taiwan and a couple of places I've not had the shipping details yet. Only today I had a painting delivered to New York and received a messaged they love the work. I was watching a news clip last night about the deserted streets of NY and thought of my painting on the way there.
There are good teams still supporting me, my online galleries the courier services and the strong message from all that it's business (maybe not as usual) but as best we can, and I give thanks to them all. And my collectors where would we be without them?
Painting is my life, and if my work brings a little joy and happiness to people, then I can ask no more.
I hope you all stay safe and keep washing your hands.
