Have you ever thought about having a scene professionally painted?
Whether you are looking to have a painting created for yourself, your squadron or as a gift for someone special; I can create the perfect painting for you!
I first started my aviation painting with WWII aircraft; so this is a good place to begin.
I receive many requests to paint scenes depicting WWII aircraft where a crew member is a family relative. It's a great way of paying tribute to their contribution and service during the war and brings those memories and stories to life in a painting that will be cherished and passed down through future generations.
Do you have a story to tell? Would you like to see a scene brought to life featuring a particular aircraft/Squadron and setting? If so, I would love to hear from you.
This is an example of how I can take a photo reference and create a whole new scene by including more than originally shown.
As well as accepting commissioned work from individuals, I have also produced paintings for Squadrons around the World, depicting aircraft found throughout history and today.
It's not just military aircraft that I paint. I enjoy creating eye capturing scenes of all kinds of aircraft in various settings.
My professional career started primarily based around the subject of military aviation. However, over the past couple of years I've had an increase in commission requests asking me to depict Maritime scenes, such as the Navy and SAR (Search and Rescue).
I paint a variety of sizes and ensure that I fit as much detail into a painting as physically possible regardless of size. Although the larger the painting, the more detail I can include; I still ensure that even the smaller scenes are detailed enough to look realistic and believable.
I achieve this fine intricate detail by using some of the finest brushes available to create paintings that not only look realistic and detailed from a distance, but also attract the viewer to a high level of accurate detail when observed up close.
Some of the most emotional projects to work on are those remembering individuals who are no longer with us. Recently I created these two scenes depicting pilots who tragically died in the prime of their lives.
I place as much enthusiasm and skill into every painting I create and thoroughly enjoy the non aviation subjects I am asked to paint

SIZES & PRICING
My 2022 prices range from £120 - £1350 depending not only on size, but also level of detail, contents and the expected time to create.
My standard sizes are as follows. However, I can paint any size within the range of my smallest and largest size.
I often commence research up to a month in advance of painting which helps familiarise myself with the subject. I never second guess details and study as much reference material as possible to ensure accuracy. Customers are also provided with regular progress updates throughout a project.
Commissioned paintings are created on high quality Arches Hot Pressed paper. I use Gouache to create my paintings as this medium allows me to achieve the highest levels of detail compared to other less fine paints.
A certificate of Authenticity is supplied with every commission and gives detail of the scene as well as materials used.
I accept commissions Worldwide and with shipping costing between £10-35 depending on painting size and destination. This price includes all packaging materials and shipping insurance using a tracked and recorded service.
