Paintings for sale


Original art at affordable prices

"I am pleased to present these original colour paintings available for sale direct to you, all of which are discounted from the price you would normally see if they were for sale via an art gallery.

By selling my art direct to collectors, it helps me continue doing what I love: painting and drawing, especially during these challenging times. Therefore, if you are in a position to be able to support the work that I do and would like to purchase one of these paintings, please contact me via the form on the contact page or by phoning me to reserve a piece of art in the first instance and so we can discuss payment methods and delivery options.

All of the paintings sold direct from my studio are unframed, ready for delivery. However, if you would like a painting framed, I can offer a framing service, provided by my local frame-maker at an additional cost.

Thank you."
