I am an abstract artist living near Macclesfield, Cheshire. I am self-taught and paint in a unique way. My artworks are all original and are talking points and enhance rooms and offices, whatever the style of the room.
I like to deal directly with the buyer ( no added agent or gallery costs) so that they get exactly what it is they require.
Acquiring art is a very personal experience, and ideally a buyer will trust their reaction to the piece in order to make a decision. However it is natural that we feel more confident in our choices if someone of recognised authority agrees with our point of view. Following is a review of my work by the highly regarded art critic, Richard Dorment FSA, CBE.

All my works are original acrylic on canvas, card, paper or board. I usually have paintings available for sale. Prices vary depending on the size and intricacy of the works.
Where possible I prefer buyers to view paintings in person as colours can look different online. Paintings are not framed but this can be arranged with a trusted local framer.
I like to deal directly with the client. I can paint to a size and colour to suit a space and I can advise on the colour. The canvas sizes I like to use are one metre square and larger as this gives a greater impact to a room.
Once a size has been chosen, I can calculate the price for the painting and give an estimate as to how long it will take to complete. On average, it will take 6 - 8 weeks.
Once a decision has been made to go ahead, I present an invoice for half the price of the painting ( non-returnable). The invoice for the remainder of the cost of the painting is presented on delivery.
’Running Bear, in Alderley Edge is one of the top independent running shops in England, and they have been so impressed with my work that they have created the Heaton Collection range of sportswear. This was created in 2019 and has been so successful that they have released a new 2021 range. These can be seen via the button below.
All paintings are signed on the reverse and marked with the artist's fingerprint. In the case of framed paintings, the reverse of the frame is additionally signed and fingerprinted.
