Prints, now available



I have produced a series of limited -edition giclee prints of a selection of my favourite paintings. Launched this weekend at the Silverdale and Arnside Art Trail, they have proved to be a popular alternative to the real thing. This image has actually been enhanced by the larger format and by saturating the colours!
I will be getting my website updated with details of these later this week.
