All my paintings start with a family story or event which I enjoy sharing with visitors on Sundays by appointment. I hope vistors can relate to the universal truth behind the works which I have made over a period of fifty years.
The final paintings are not for sale though there are some postcards, prints and preliminary canvases which may be purchased.
