Welcome to ‘Galerie 40′


So named because I live in the village of Quarante in the stunning Languedoc region in the south of France. My house, which is  in the heart of this historic village high on a hill is the home of my studio and also my little gallery. 

On this site I want to introduce you to the range of creative work I can do and show you a treasure trove of paintings of all sizes. Some are mounted and framed, some just mounted, and some there for you to dress up as you wish.

As a ‘Creative Entrepreneur’ as well as ‘painting pictures‘, I also have the skills to create specialist paint effects, such as marbling and wood graining, painted furniture as well as designing and painting murals and trompe l’oeil.

If you are in the area and would like to come and visit all you have to do is telephone me and arrange a time to come over, and of course there is no obligation to make a purchase. If you aren’t in the area but you see a picture on this site that you like the look of, please contact me to discuss how I can get it to you either framed or not.

I hope you enjoy looking at my work as much as I enjoy creating it.
