  • Please click on the image to enlarge it. My interpretation of the classic Robin Hood tales that have been portrayed through some of my favourite books and the big screen. This piece shows my intention for this body of work where we focus on the lead characters and convey a strong emotion through them that expands on my concept for the piece. In this instance we see two horses taking the lead within the composition, the white horse being Robin Hood and the other Marian. The interaction between them is really beautiful and powerful, symbolising their love for one another, at first it seems playful and innocent until you notice a particular detail, the arrow in her side which  changes everything. The title for this piece suggests that their love is not embraced and their relationship outlawed, stealing a moment within the forest that doesn’t go unnoticed, a risk that they were prepared to take in the name of love. The detailing within the forest conveys this darkened element to the narrative and the brutal nature of the battles that rage around them, it is then up to you to decide Marian’s fate.   Please note – This picture is supplied glazed so there is a delivery charge as we have to make special arrangements for delivery, also delivery may take longer than usual.
  • Please click on the image to enlarge it. This is the follow up piece to last year’s Narnia inspired ‘For Now I Am Winter’ and depicts Spring breaking within the forest. The previous piece hinted that Spring was coming even though Narnia was gripped by Winter under the White Witches rule with snow drops sprouting around the slain Aslan who had been turned to stone. What we see in this piece is a scene where Aslan has killed the Witch and her army defeated by the children. A wounded Aslan strides through the forest and onwards, his job done and leaving behind a beautiful forest that is being transformed with the positivity that  Spring brings. Subtle detailing radiates from the King’s body to give him an ethereal quality, embracing the Christ-like similarities that C J Lewis gave Aslan from being sacrificed and then resurrected to save his Kingdom. The title ‘Deliver Us From Evil’ is a link to this, taken from the Lords Prayer it acts as the call for help from the good people within Narnia who wished to be freed from their eternal Winter. As with the previous piece there is a double narrative here and it is one that touches on an individual’s state of mind and their depression - effectively being in Winter. ‘For Now I Am Winter’ referred to the acceptance of this but as a temporary and one that the individual embraced knowing that Spring would come. So this piece is confirmation of that belief and tracks that point where things start to freshen and grow leading to a positive stage that can lead to Summer yet one that still has the remnants of the darkness of Winter in the shadows that can cloud the clear. With mental health being so much more widely acknowledged and spoken about I hope that many can relate to this piece and identify with their own Aslan.

  • Please click on the image to enlarge it. My interpretation of the beautiful Lady & The Tramp! This piece has been designed to be completely open-ended, to allow you to inject your own narrative into the scene, to formulate your own back story and to decide if they are able to go on and live the dogs life together. Are we looking at a very different ending to the meal that we saw taking place or is this an attempt to try and recreate their happy place? What I have done is create a look for both dogs through their eyes and posture that will stimulate this whilst placing detail around them that will hopefully make you think a little deeper, a little darker maybe, could the devil literally be in the detail here? On first look you see a really adorable and cute image but with light must come dark so A disheveled Tramp looks toward his Lady with an offer of a rose, is the fact that it is withering a symbol of their relationship or simple an adorable link to his life on the streets? Has Tramp done something to break Lady’s heart, is he begging for forgiveness? Is this a case of one part of messing up or are they both as much to blame? Look to the wall and what has been written but attempted to be removed, who’s written that? A slanging match born from frustration or is that wall a canvas for others to air their views? The broken wine bottle is a key part without doubt, has this caused what we are seeing, and if so who succumbs to the devil drink? Is that the factor in their troubles, is that the reason that two people that whole-heartedly love each other are in the situation that you see because of how one or both change when they’ve reached the end of another bottle? Yet regardless of what you choose to believe is happening here there is one thing that is unquestionable and that is despite everything Tramp would give his last meatball to....

  • Please click on the image to enlarge it. This is the follow up piece to my 2016 E.T. ‘I’ll Be Right Here’. I have wanted to create this for a good while now as it expands on my original narrative and confirms exactly what was happening in the original scene. What we now know is the ship wasn’t waiting for E.T. but in fact was about to leave without him on the little man’s request. This new piece shows another part of the forest a while later and shows the beautiful moment when Elliott stops his BMX just out of shot when he sees his friend come into view over the rocky crag. It is that interaction, that unbreakable bond that I wanted to focus on and make that the instrumental component in this piece and harness the wonderful friendship that these two characters have. The only lights that shine are within the sky and from the Los Angeles grid in the distance, I have chosen to omit any search lights from the men that are trying to find E.T. because I wanted to make this purely positive and without question. The forest is alive with little magical detailing, almost like fireflies that glow amongst the ferns. Nestled within the fauna is the iconic ‘Speak & Spell’ that clarifies the piece ‘Elliott I Never Left’. Amongst the rocks sit a subtle NASA emblem, Coors beer cans and an Iguana basking in the moonlight, all supporting references to the Spielberg classic. My hopes for this piece is for it to be a natural progression, to stand alone but complement and to confirm and clarify the open-ended aspect of ‘I’ll Be Right Here’ and to truly do justice to the special bond between the two lead characters.

  • Please click on the image to enlarge it. My interpretation of the much loved Dumbo! The concept of this piece is to embrace the emotion that radiates from the lead character that interacts with another - so in this case it shows the unbreakable bond between the elephant and the stork that originally delivered the little man to his mother. The stork sees only perfection when looking at Dumbo, where others only see opportunities to exploit and to mock. The scene shows a forlorn Dumbo sat in a battered and ageing circus train carriage unwilling to come out, evidence of those that have contributed to his lack of confidence and self worth is all around him. A circus monkey stares at a crow holding a cigar (a reference to the original animated film) whilst a tiny mouse stares up towards Dumbo to try and get his attention whilst he is surrounded by other crows. The contrast between dark and light, good and bad is played out through references such as the contrasting black and white feathers that are dotted around the carriage. The aim was to create a random but beautiful image that displays this connection and sense of pride yet one that still has a dark side that burns. Scrawled messages and a burning ringmaster’s whip that sits next to a piece of wood featuring the ‘greed breeds monsters’ message that I have used as an overriding concept in numerous pieces and points the finger at those that exploit for personal gain. Further evidence of the darkness is shown by the knives that protrude from the carriage wall, making you think whether the knife thrower is simply sharpening their act or has darker intentions. There are clear references to the story of Jumbo, the African elephant that inspired the film, sticky buns and cracking posters are a nod a non-fictional event that was full of controversy and uncertainty yet focused on a deep bond between two characters   Please note – This picture is supplied glazed so there is a delivery charge as we have to make special arrangements for delivery, also delivery may take longer than usual.
  • Please click on the image to enlarge it. Following on from my 2016 piece entitled ‘Marry Me Bitch!’ from Beauty  & The Beast I wanted to create something different, albeit using the same powerful colour ways and capture the emotion between the two characters to be  in line with this collection. So using the style you see in this piece I have looked to depict and amplify the passion between the two dancers, to showcase the sense of surrender by Belle in her partner’s arms whilst also capturing the movement of the dance in an abstract fashion. Parts of the image move vertically in comparison to others that move horizontally whilst some are more prominent - it is the balance of creating depth and shape whilst leaving some of  the facial detail softer to embrace those who love to imagine that they are Belle, or the Beast maybe!. Without doubt this narrative has a dark side to it and works beautifully against all things good, the detailing within the background depicts this with subtle elements moving out from the shadows towards the characters that interact with the tiny lighting details. My hope for this piece is that I have done this adored image justice and taken it to a different place that embraces what this collection is all about, showcasing the lengths and sacrifices that people will go to for love.
