The photographic and digital image dominate our world today, but once, every image you might have seen around town would have been the work of an artist. I offer something older, to remind us of a craft-based time; something physical, which needs to be seen in person for you to appreciate its full potential.
My work is inspired by the European and North American movements between 1910 and 1940. I paint by hand, using a technique which I developed to echo the beauty of lithographic print, the medium by which most art and design was viewed by the public in those years.
It is also inspired by something else: my commissions often take me to the bespoke tailoring and shoemaking world of Mayfair, of the famous arcades, and of the legendary Savile Row; places full of very gifted and dedicated craftspeople. I thank them for their guidance, and generous spirit.
