I encountered this scene as an unexpected bonus collecting a coffee table from an obscure warehouse on the A1. I am very fond of cooling towers. For me they are emblematic of the post-industrial landscape. The lovely old horse against that backdrop seems to suggest a sort of epitaph to the fossil-fuel era.

I am an artist based in Sheffield. My principle preoccupation is with the post industrial urban landscape of this city. I paint what I like but I have taken on many commissions for people who like the way I paint. My paintings are underpinned by a delight in the marriage of nature, light and the built environment.
