Gem Collection


Constructed of many, sometimes hundred unique pieces, the Gem collection casts colour and brightness into your living and working space on even the greyest of days.

Imagine wandering through the old inner cities of Asia, seeing the flowers, foods and colourful gemstones laid out. Or watching the sun set from the beach or the mountain tops. That's what resonates with me from my travels and that's what I've tried to capture in the vibrant Gem collection.

The paintings in this series are available in a variety of sizes, materials, finishes and prices.


A mix of exotic colours and iridescent metals, mother-of-pearl, minerals and stones, silvers, golds, coppers, metallics and ultramarines. I've tried to capture the golden yellows and oranges of Asia and North Africa and the cooler, ice blue silvers and titanium whites of Scandinavia and the Himalayas.

The movement of sunlight on water, pink and purple amethyst from India. Sapphire blue, emerald green and ruby red from my travels in Asia. All captured in individual blocks of colour, creating a kaleidoscope of colour and texture in vibrant compositions.
