The purpose of this site is to offer a retrospective overview of my paintings, and to describe my working approaches and artistic aims.
My work features close up studies of vegetation, often in urban locations, painted entirely from direct observation in the open air. Though it has sometimes been described as 'garden painting' rather than 'landscape', and included in exhibitions and publications on that theme, 'plantscape' might be a better term for the interface between cultivation and wilderness.
Most of the pictures are now in private collections in Britain and abroad. Some recent works may be for sale. Enquiries regarding sales should be addressed to Francis Kyle, my artistic agent since 1998:
Francis Kyle Gallery 9 Maddox Street Mayfair London W1S 2QE
