Don’t ever be without your zoom lens!

I was really annoyed with myself today; as I missed the chance of such an amazing shot.  We have been in Whistler, Canada, a couple of weeks now and while sitting eating breakfast, I turned and saw a sight I never thought I’d see walking past our dining room window.  A bear!  I ran to […]

Wonderful Vietnam and Cambodia

I have just fulfilled one of my all time, ‘must do’, travel destinations, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.  I have spent the past 10 days in Vietnam and Cambodia.  Spending most of my time in Vietnam’s bustling Ho Chi Minh City and Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh.  What an adventure I had too. Ho chi Minh […]

Everglades and its skies

Just got back from a trip to the Everglades.  The alligators were amazing but the drive down there was just as good.  I often reflect and think very deeply about my artistic intensions when on car journeys with wide open roads and landscapes.  The drive from Miami to the Everglades was like being in a […]

Picture postcard – Florida Keys

I have just returned from a little road trip to the Florida Keys.  It was a wonderful place to visit, not to mention the brilliant drive down there.  The place itself is a tropical haven.  It really was like stepping into a dreamy picture postcard.  That had been ridiculously colour enhanced in Photoshop.  Quite incredible!

Bali Flower

I have just finished a painting for my friends 30th birthday present.  There is nothing more wonderful than painting something that makes you feel happy every time you put your brush to the canvas.  This is true of ‘Bali Flower’.  I chose a photograph I’d taken of a ‘Frangipani’ flower for the reference to my […]

Phi Phi

It’s hard not to fall in love with this beautiful Thai Island. I have just got back from a perfect trip to a truly perfect tropical paradise.  I will certainly be referring back to my photographs one day and using these idealistic waters and tranquil scenery as reference to paintings.           […]

Emerald Hill road

Just got back from a trip to Singapore.  Although I found it to be an interesting country to visit it certainly wasn’t somewhere I’d ever want to live.  It’s one of those places that once you’ve visited and done all the usual tourist hotspots you feel you’ve done it and probably never feel the need […]

The main purpose of the trip was to visit Sepilok’s Orang-Utan rehabilitation Centre. […]
