Wood Mosaics

My wood mosaic pictures are made from recycled wood flooring from which I cut a design, paint the parts and then glue to a backing board of the same grain. The pictures are finished off with a laminate strip of wood round the exterior which means they do not need framing.

Silhouettes

My Silhouette pictures have a lot of the wood grain showing, some are just black silhouettes cut out painted and glued back and others contain colour, like the deer below. The deer has twenty three cut pieces and the boy training his dog has five.

Colourful stylizations

I use spray paint on the individual sections before they are glued back onto a backing board, this lets me get some nice splatter effects in the work.

Boats and lighthouses

I worked at sea for a good portion of my life and enjoy doing artworks of boats and lighthouses now.
