21/06/2021 A new non-resin piece I am working on at the moment. It has texture and I am going to add gold leaf. If you are interested in this piece let me know and I can pesonalise the gold or any metallic leaf to your preference.

1/05/2021. Here are a few of my creations from this year up to now.

11/11/2020  I apologise for the silence on this blog page.  A lot has happened since I last posted honestly! I mainly keep my Instagram and Facebook pages updated regularly if you want to see a reel of what I have been up to.

In short: “Home is where the art is” aired, did you see who won??? It was nominated for a Royal Television Society Award for Best daytime series.

My wife and I rented a stall at Wilmslow Artisan Worker Bee market for the day in November last year which was a first.  I was very proud to show my variations of artwork (and a few purchases were made!)16051030015901290375808576800238

Another Art Gallery in Knutsford called Vermilion is displaying a few pieces of my artwork since last February.  It is a fantastic gallery to visit if you are passing, very quirky and luxurious.


Coronavirus happened.  The end.  Thankfully I have still been able to create a few pieces and commissions are still coming in.

18/04/2019.  Today is the day. 3.45



So it’s finally here…this week I’m on the telly box! My episode of BBC1 home is where the art is will be Thursday the 18th of April at 3.45 (repeated the next day on BBC 2 at 7.15am) am I scared? Yes…am I going to make a fool of myself in front of possibly 10s or 100s….definately! Haha


I filmed with the bbc for three days for an upcoming programme about my artwork (well it’s not all about me but come on it is!) Haha my lips are sealed for the details for now.


It’s been a bit of a whirlwind year up till now on the art front, last week Kate  Houghton the editor of Cheshire Life and Living Edge magazines came round to bmartstuff HQ to write a feature on my work!

Had a really nice morning talking all things art (and kids) the lovely photographer took lots of shots and we went for a coffee to get info for the article she is writing.  So look out for the next issue of Cheshire Life!

My workspace



Mixed my style up a bit this week to try a seascape instead and…. Loved it


Loved it so much that I decided to keep it!… At least for now. Added a little triptych to match


Stop the press look at this table


If I had a big house I’d keep this but iv added it for sale. Its beautiful. 75cm diameter only £450


How hot has this summer been? Too hot to work indoors and a little bit too hot to work outside but needs must…..



Sold to a customer who wanted it wall mounted for her holiday home. It has the best views in the world, the house is called whisper of the sea for obvious reasons! Take a peek at where it will be living!



You even get sea views whilst cooking! Feel free to have a look on



Bought a copy of Cheshire life September 2018. Excited to be featured! Summer may have ended but those coral shorts live on!
