I've painted a few wall murals in my time, and I am getting into it again if anybody is interested, below is a fairy fantasy chalk board wall I am working on at the moment. It's far from finished, expect these images to be updated as we go on.

Current projects:-

a) The Fairy fantasy wall; below. ongoing...

b) Disney Jungle book wall mural theme, ongoing...

... right is the drawing for a fairy in the top right corner of the blackboard, more drawings are planned and then I will paint them, and then merge the whole lot into one big piece. This wall is in our home, for when the grand children come and stay. 

For wall murals, any theme can be painted to look cool. go to Murals or go to commissions. 

The Space scene; right, is a wall I painted in Paulsgrove, Portsmouth: For a lad that was into deep space 9 star trek theme. And the Jungle book theme on the go below.

LEFT & above is another fantasy wall I'm working on currently. It's not finished; there's a lot of colouring in to do etc. Another childrens bedroom. Suggestions for Adults quarters or living rooms etc are, Mediteranian scenes, Egyptian, Exotic, Islands etc. 'Trompe le oeil' or illusion of the eye works well on walls etc.
Here I am cleaning my Chichester Cathedral Oil with a cotton bud and my secret oil cleaning formula I concocted many moons ago it seems. I painted this piece in 1995.


COMMISSIONS: are easy to arrange, any subject; for example: Your house/building and grounds, your animals (especially horses and dogs) your vehicles even. Or just and heirloom landscape of your locale and choice.Prices for commissions are met when contacted, I usually frame them myself, but that is clients decision. All it takes is a photo sent. I can take from photo. An original oil painting has something a photo does not!! and lasts atleast beyond my lifetime; so they become heirlooms. And their value goes up. Interested? email:

NOTE: Artist has complete discretion over prices of works of Intellectual property, they have copyright which does not need to be endorsed by a solicitor. Prices or values of any works may adjust again at Artist' complete discretion. At the moment most of my work is NFS because I always maintain a 'collection' to show at any exhibition.

PLANS to do an oil painting of a Welsh landscape (love the country only perused it once so far.) I have needed to come out of my area for a long time now, as far as my oil painting goes anyhow. I may have found an alternative place to paint now.
