Motor Racing Art

I am a motor racing artist who specializes in painting life-like representations of racing and sports cars. I have exhibited paintings at Silverstone, Le Mans, the Goodwood Festival of Speed and London’s West End.

I have always been obsessed with all things motor racing and from a very early age have sketched and painted racing cars.

My passion for racing started when I went to the Crystal Palace circuit  in London in the early 1950’s. Since then, Farina and Ascari apart, I have seen every single F1 World Champion in action!  I have also raced cars and even commentated at Brands Hatch!  It is with this background and passion that gives me the ‘feel’ and in-depth knowledge of the subject – essential for a motor racing artist .

I work in gouache and currently paints to two styles;

The traditional style which features a specific car/driver combination at a particular event. For those who own classic or historic racing or sports cars this could mean that the painting could feature the owner/driver at a historic meeting or if the car has a history the car in period.

More recently I have developed a more graphic style. This features a static car where the limited background consists mainly of the manufacturers badge and one or two items which relate to that specific car. Take a look at newbielink: [nonactive]

Paintings vary in size, but generally the finished item (without frame) will measure in the region of 500 x 350mm. The actual proportions will depend on the subject matter. Larger paintings are possible.

I can also work in pencil and these sketches will cost less than a painting as they do not take as long to create.

So, if you want to commission a painting or drawing of your favourite car or your favourite motor racing memory, please get in touch
