I returned to watercolour painting in 2016, having dropped all painting about the turn of the millennium.  Not being well had something to do with it.  These watercolours continue my Men at work series, begun  first with photomontage/collage, and continued with pen and collage.  All the images are pulled from the internet.  I have also done countless drawings at Princess Margaret Hospital, and recently took up plein air watercolour painting.

The Archive of the website covers work before 2000: my acrylic paintings drawings, and sculpture in wood.  The Archive includes work done by the three-member JAC collective (1980s), as well as work by the two-man united artists (late 1980s).  It also includes Clarence Barne’s guestbook at Casey House 1995.

A selection of my early work, including plein air watercolours, can be found here:
