A painting of your house is a wonderful gift to your husband/wife, parent or child. It is an object of beauty that will last, and it will be enjoyed by future generations.

‘Why not just take a photograph?’

Often trees block and obscure interesting architectural elements. In the painting I make for you, trees can be moved slightly, eliminated, or can be reduced in size. With a photograph, your garden may not be at its ideal best, but in my paintings the gardens are always at their most stunning and reflect the way you view them in your mind. In addition, I can include a garden or a gazebo or guesthouse and/or water view that is distant from the house. My paintings are not limited by the lens of a camera!

I aim to produce the painting you wish to have and I work with you, gaining your input and approval as the project proceeds. And, the painting of the house is always architecturally correct.
