Oil On Canvas - Recent Works

I am currently working on three new collections simultaneously.

The Greek Island Collection features Summer at Santorini. Bright and cheerful, romantic and inviting. I love to share my travels through art.


My second active series is of the racehorse, Versailles WVH. My latest work of Versailles is Racing Respite, a look at the second career this thoroughbred mare found as a warmblood broodmare. As she is currently in foal, I am looking forward to hopefully capturing her forthcoming progeny on canvas and by camera also. I am donating a portion of the proceeds from the print sales of this work to the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, in Saratoga, New York.

And the third collection is a breed collection. The present work on the easel is of a Hanoverian foal at play.

Please click here to visit the signature pieces available for sale and to see print work of the originals also available in greeting card format.

I also accept commission work so please feel free to email me at with your queries. My rates are very reasonable.
