Welcome

Hi there.

Please forgive me, but some of these photo's are not very good but now that I have the gallery up and running I promise to improve on the quality of pictures that I put up here.
For those of you who do not know, I work full time as an artist and I am only too happy to do commissions. Most of these pictures have been sold already but I do have some in storage which I will be adding in the next week or so, just need to take some good photo's. I hope you enjoy.
Oh and I forgot to mention, I am giving Pewter lessons at the Seed Pod why not come over and say hello.

 A Peaceful Sleep.
This painting is featured in my book but what is interesting is that the original does not have these shadows. While I was painting her I put the painting outside under the trees to dry and the shadows created by the sun shinning through the leaves creates a really peaceful painting. (This painting is no longer available, it was given to the trauma counsellor who helped me recover from the PTS that I had suffered with for 10years.)

I read the book White Oleander several years ago which is where the inspiration for this painting came from. She doesn't look as sad and unhappy as the character in the book though.


Sego Dancers in Mauritius
The picture doesn't do the painting justice I will try and download a better photo when I have some time.
