 Enquire Within

Hallo! Enjoy a jolly ramble through this "overgrown shrubbery on the outer fringes of Art" or "shambolic subcontinent of a website" to quote some of iPaint's voluminous fanmail.

Aha! I've finally got the hang of DreamWeaver and no longer have to travel 300 miles to update this website. So expect more changes, more often. And

I now have the honour to be one of the Editors of that highly respected, brilliantly illustrated, and widely influential (if a bit occasional) publication
The Land Magazine
 New postcard, appearing soon. Get your Wild & Scottish Buckthorn Juice (see below) here.  

This is a new(ish) Scottish Winter painting, "Reedmace, February" It's 30 x 30 inches with a walnut edge, very lovely, and £450. It coincided with the Sea Buckthorn original below, which is sold already.

For a bit more refreshment I've added lots of colourful new material to the murals page.

Please do re-visit from time to time - there's lots here to goggle at, you probably missed a few bits, and plenty of paintings are still available to buy, including several not shown here.

If you need me urgently preferably for some form of bribery call
07909 15 48 24
Email is better.


 Postcards of this painting from the icy February shores of North Berwick are now available. Learn more of the wonderful Sea Buckthorn plant and its fiercely healthy juice (and where to get some) at

iPaint is
120 + funky original paintings of the whole world, almost. I'm working on it.

The Plasticine Gates

see "Cyprus" and "Andalucia" pages for more such
lovely winter sunshine, way cheaper
than a package holiday, better for your concience and much more long-lasting.
And then do pop across to India ....

The link to Tom Lloyd's now very celebrated film Live Before You Die, with words by me, is now
on the "Animals" page. Don't miss it.

Yes folks, I've got a proper job at last-
as the Ornamental Hermit of a fine
Gothic establishment in deepest Dorset. This photo shows a previous
incarnation of my yurt, now rebuilt
a bit more spaciously.
The simple life is splendid
but the paintings do have to be small.

Black & White too - papercuts are fun to do. These are logos for the Icelandic Forestry Volunteers - (work in progress.) and the Scythe Association of Britain & Ireland.
