After a very successful few months with fifteen paintings sold through a couple of exhibitions then the on-line gallery, which usually displays over forty artworks, will be changing with new work added to the existing as and when appropriate.

It’s a regularly varying scene reflecting work currently available for sale.

My work is usually 76 x 76cm (30” x 30”) square on block canvass (no frames needed) and is generally acrylic that is varnished, signed and strung ready for hanging.

People say the work is bold, different, stunningly colourful and eye-catching. Yes my paintings are a visual statement with punch – they aren’t lacklustre.

Prices range from £225.00 to £275.00 – pick a East Coast Iconpicture and contact me via the ‘Contact’ form for more details

<  Here are a few of those sold

I don’t do many exhibitions but these two have, once again, proved successful with paintings also sold along with sales post Art in the Pen

Pleased that the local art shop continue to sell my work and delighted that against some stiff competition at Art in the Pen (where quality improves every year) then, great comments about the impact of my work and its refreshing difference but also sales.

Thanks everyone




Delighted  my contemporary paintings will once again be on show at Art in the Pen in Skipton 11th & 12th August. (more details soon).

If you’ve not been before enjoy the day (or two) at the show which takes place at the Auction Mart (hence the ‘pens’ for exhibitors) on the outskirts of Skipton. Easy parking, lots of paintings, pottery, crafts and more see and if we’re fed and watered we don’t bite!

(no this isn’t me at last year’s show)

Thanking the 40%

Thanks to all the customers who popped into my recent exhibition at the Gallery at The Art Shop in Ilkley and bought a painting (someone bought four and they are now in Portugal!).

40% of paintings on show were sold

Thanks also to Sue and Tim at the art shop for all their help and support

On show at the Gallery At The Art Shop in Ilkley

From 30th January to 25th February the “Gallery At The Art Shop” on Hawksworth Street in Ilkley is presenting an exhibition of over sixteen of my paintings.

Known for my vibrant canvases my contemporary paintings are based on a series of subjects including fishing boats, fish, shorelines and woodland scenes. Painted in acrylic on block canvas the images are highly colourful and bold.

I know people buy paintings because they like them, it suits their taste, they want a statement piece or there is an emotional connection with the subject. Of course my subjects are familiar, but unlike a photograph or a lifelike reproduction, my artwork shows a viewpoint that is both unique and distinctive.

The ‘Gallery At The Art Shop’ (open 10 am – 5pm, Mon –Sat) is part of the popular Art Shop in Ilkley well known for artist materials and framing and I’m delighted to be showing my paintings in my local town.
