I�m so pleased to be able to support myself with my personal artwork once more!

Many thanks to all who have been loving and buying my work!! Here are some images of the work so far this year, and an image of a commission that I finished at the end of last year.

I am in the beginning of a mural that is about 7 x 7.5 metres for a private house, there will be more on this next post!

One star at a time..

Painting in the stars, one at a time. I love to make sure that all the constellations I paint are as accurate as possible. They are generally what was above the subject when they were born
