Welcome to my virtual studio

This is where I can share my passion for mountain landscape and wild natural places with others who are excited by the beauty of light and colour, shape and form, and the diversity of the scenery all around us. Although I use photography to capture the raw material, the definitive medum of my artistic expression is through paint and brush on canvas. Enjoy your visit!

Please come in and look around

The theme for the 2015 exhibition of the Guild of Swiss Mountain Painters was "Mountain Waters", for which I submitted the three works below. Two were selected and these could be seen in the gallery of the Bromer Art Collection in Roggwil, Canton Bern, together with over 100 paintings by 55 of the members. The exhibition ran from 25 July to 6 September 2015. For further details, please click here.

A special feature of the 2015 Guild exhibition was an auction to the benefit of the Swiss Patenschaft für Berggemeinden, an organisation which provides financial and infrastructural support for alpine communities. Members were invited to donate one painting, as a gesture of solidarity with those who live and work in the mountain areas. My painting shows the Zinal Rothorn and the little village of Ayer in the Val d'Anniviers in Canton Valais. For further details of the event, please click here.

All my paintings, with the exception of some of the earlier works, are now available as digital fine art prints and cards. Individually printed to order using pigmented inks on archival-quality artist paper they combine excellent colour and long-lasting image quality. For more details please click here.
