This is a new series of projectiles, bullets and other objects from various wars in history. The pieces are authentic, that is they have been used by the military and they aren't models or replicas. They are covered with various designs and relevant quotes depending on the era or war that they are from. For example pieces from WW1 or WW2 have European motifs whereas pieces used in more recent times have islamic designs. Some can't be shown here because they could potentially offend those with very rigid religious or political beliefs, and so here are some of the less controversial ones.

For over thirty years I have been painting people's dogs and cats. Back in the seventies I did a friend's dog and then some of their friends wanted a portrait and so it went - the demand has never stopped. I never tire of painting animals because each one has a distinct personality and so inspires a different portrait each time - its always a fresh experience from the perspective of an artist. People ask me if I have ever painted any of my own dogs and the answer is "no" only because there isn't enough time in the day, but I couldn't imagine living my life without the love of a dog!
