The White Hart's Portal
The White Hartâs Portal is an original oil painting of a white deer stag appearing out of an abstract landscape (30x30x1.5 inches). The white deer looks to his right across the strange pale yellow and amethyst land. Behind him are trees that are weaving together as if they unknotted to allow him through. This is his portal (doorway) to elsewhere. The paint is thick and textured but the stag himself is carefully painted to contrast with the oddness of the environment he finds himself in. If I had to choose an animal that could possibly move between worlds, it would be deer. This particular deer is a real one and he lives at the British Wildlife Centre in Surrey where I stalked him one day to get photos of him. Painted on 3D canvas, edges white, ready to hang.

This piece is part of a collection inspired by the building process within an environment or landscape. By reducing various materials to their simplest forms, a series of beautiful lines and organic shapes remain. The works are painted digitally and produced on 3mm gloss laminated dibond aluminium. This allows them to be displayed both indoors and outdoors, resonating with the environment as they were intended.
The Bridge at Villeneuve La Garenne Oil Painting
Portent, autumn path at sunset with stag
Portent is a 30x30x1.5 inches original square oil painting in oil on canvas of an autumn landscape path at sunset with a deer stag in the centre. It was inspired by a walk I took near the Ashdown Forest, Crowborough area, in November. The deer stands watching, in that challenging way stags sometimes do, and is ready to lead the viewer elsewhere if they decide to walk the path. I painted this as I often see deer on my walks around Sussex and Kent and I often get the feeling they know how to access places that I canât get to. Of all the woodland animals, they are the most ethereal as they can appear and then vanish so fast. Typically with a flash of white bottom that is quite dismissive and makes me laugh. Traditionally, deer are heralded as spirit guides in many cultures so I am not alone in being enchanted by the mystery they have. I created the feeling of movement towards the stag in this painting by blurring the edges and making them out of focus whilst making the deer and centre quite sharp and detailed. I then painted lines of perspective that lead to the aperture with the stag at its heart. I find magic in ancient landscapes and this is an expression of this fairy tale quality. White edges, deep edge canvas, no frame needed, ready to hang.

Thames barge at Chelsea wharf
A Thames barge is moored alongside a wharf at Chelsea in London, I took the photograph that I used for the painting in 1988, by then both the barge and the wharf had been outmoded for a long time, their purpose of use altered from being worked by occupation and commerce to becoming abodes to be lived in. Change didn't destroy them but it did destroy the ways of life they supported.
