Welcome to my home site!  I hope you enjoy looking at the watercolour and acrylic paintings that I have produced from my travels and adventures. I have also included pen and watercolour sketches as well as pen and pencil sketches.  This is a work in progress like many things in life and so I continually add new work.

I created this website with the purpose of chronicling my journey in travel and art with my blog “The Paddle And The Paintbrush”; which will talk about anything and everything as it relates to this journey.

New acrylic paintings on canvas.                                               August  2021

On my home page I have posted some acrylic paintings on canvas that are a new direction for me.  In the past I have focused on watercolour paintings and pen and watercolour sketches.  As much as I love expressing myself in these disciplines I have been experimenting in acrylic as well as pastel.  For me the pandemic has been an opportunity to experiment with other mediums.

Thanks for stopping by,
