Have you ever thought about having a scene professionally painted?
With sizes to suit different budgets; owning a unique and special piece of art could be more affordable than you think
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.
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

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.
