I really hope you like my work and my website. And if you’ve any questions, just get in touch.


I am always seeing incredible pictures of places I never get to visit so I’m running a competition as follows.

The person who sends me the best photograph (to will win the original painting of the photograph.

Because I want it to be an amazing picture, this is not going to be a lucky dip. It’s going to be what will work best as an original piece. So send me your pictures (the higher the resolution the better). I will not use anyone’s photograph without their permission and the winner is entitled to keep the original painting but I will own the rights for prints and cards. I really look forward to seeing where you’ve been or the amazing places you live. I will choose the winner on the 23rd April to give everyone a little time (including the Easter Holidays).

And here’s some answers to your questions:

1) Yes, you can send in multiple entries 2) It can be any country 3) This competition is to win a painting of a view/scene/street etc… to do as a lettering piece – not a portrait of a person or animal
