Welcome to the online gallery of my artwork. I hope that you enjoy looking around the website and find it informative.

I also hope that you share both, my excitement and enthusiasm for the incredible adventure that is space exploration, and my appreciation for the thousands of people that have made it happen.

I am a member of the British Interplanetary Society, The National Space Society and an artist member of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA).

You will find examples of my art work in the gallery, where you can order prints from. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments.

I've just finished a commission called "In The Beginning" which shows the launch of Apollo 8. Inclusion in the gallery and prints will be available soon.

On the drawing board now, is a picture I'm doing of the Apollo 13 crew, as we approach the 50th Anniversary of that historic mission.

I'm also planning to change things up a bit and do some portraits showing women who have contributed to the exploration of space, as part of the Yuri's Night LA event (see below).

Up coming shows that I'll be exhibiting at:

Yuri's Night LA (Saturday April 11, 2020) California Science Center, Los Angeles. This will be the 20th anniversary of this event and is celebrating the theme of "Women In Space". For more information and tickets:


Spacefest X (July 9 - 12, 2020) in Tucson Arizona.

Tickets for the show are available, through the following link:


If you have never been to Spacefest, then do make the trip. Meet and talk, in this beautiful location, with Apollo and Space Shuttle astronauts, mission controllers, authors, vendors and, of course, the best space artists around. This is the one event, where you can really talk and have your picture taken with these amazing people, without being rushed. Bring items to have them autographed too. This will be my 5th Spacefest, as an exhibiting artist, and I look forward to meeting you there. NovaSpace really put on a great show.

Spacefest 2019 - Interview

A 3 minute interview with me at Spacefest 2019, talking about how I got started.

Many thanks to Jeremy Theoret at ApolloSpace.com for doing this and for allowing me to share it here.

The Space Show - Interview...

I was asked to guest on the online radio program, "The Space Show", at the beginning of November, 2018. It's hosted by Dr. David Livingstone and has been running for about 18 years, with all sorts of interesting topics explored. There is an archive of every one of them that can be searched on the website.


This is the link for the show that I'm on:
