Winter Wonder - Christmas Gift Ideas

Winter Wonder

Stuck for a Christmas Gift Idea??

Our thoughts are turning to Christmas and the winter months ahead. I love this time of year as it has something truly magical to offer... The leaves on the trees have nearly all fallen now leaving a beautiful soft golden carpet for us to tread. There is an excited expectancy of what is around the corner and a gathering of our thoughts as we venture into the winter realms of nature.

If you are thinking of buying a special gift for someone this Christmas then now could be the time to take a look at my new collection of landscape paintings - I took my inspiration from snowy Alpine mountains and Tuscan valleys. Paintings such as ‘Snow Trek’ or ‘The Ski’ will appeal to the ski enthusiasts. I am also busy working on my new abstract collection which will be ready towards the end of November - a collection of vibrant abstracts with an emphasis on capturing the flow within nature.

New Collection Now Ready

New Landscape Collection

I have, today, unveiled my new collection of abstract landscape designs - all can be viewed on my website at

I have always always had a fascination with snow and would dearly love to experience a little more, however where i live, in the South of England, we tend not to get much....I think we had a few days last Winter when I was able to get out for lovely crisp walks in the forest with the crispness of the snow under my feet. My son Ben and I built a snowman and we even managed a snowball fight with the family next door - great fun!! So all of my winter landscapes are painted with a great deal of pleasure as I am painting them, so I hope you too feel the energy I have put into them.

Another addition to my Landscape Collection is my Scenes of Tuscany, a few are show below, however all can be viewed on my website at - Again, Italy holds a special place in my heart, having visited Italy a few times, I would love to one day own a villa in the countryside - I guess it's every artist's dream, to gain great inspiration looking out over the tuscan valleys, seeing the beautiful mix of colours ranging from terracotta to yellow ochre, a pure delight.

All the Landscapes are oil on canvas with a starting price of £149.00
