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.

Space Tech Expo 2019 in Pasadena, California (May 21-22, 2019)

I'll be showing a new piece at this show for the first time. It's called "In Their Honor" and depicts a sentiment shared by many who were part of Project Apollo. They felt that had the Apollo 1 fire not happened, Kennedy's goal of landing a man on the Moon by the end of the decade may not have happened. This artwork is not yet included in this website's gallery.

This will be my 3rd year exhibiting at this show, along with my fellow IAAA artists friends:
Chris Calle, Marilynn Flynn, Simon Kregar, Pamela Lee, Mark Pestana, Aldo Spadoni and Rick Sternbach.

The display panels that I built for the Yuri's Night LA event were a big success, so we'll be using those again.

There is free registration available at this link:


Spacefest X (Aug 8 - 11, 2019) in Tucson Arizona.

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


Special hotel rates for the Starr Pass Resort are available now, via the same link at the bottom of the page, when you open it. If you have never been to Spacefest, then 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, and get items signed by them. With Spacefest X coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, it promises to be something special for everyone who attends. This will be my 4th Spacefest, as an exhibiting artist, and I look forward to meeting you there.

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.
