Sailing boat paintings and the sea

Sailing boats and the sea have always been important to me so a section that shows a couple of my recent sketches of the sea and sailing boat commissions gives an idea of what you can commission of a favourite place or view.

Thank you to Mark Price, for his generous endorsement of my work –

When I saw Nina’s drawings of animals it was clear that she had a love and empathy for her subject and the detail was simply extraordinary,’ says Mr Price. ‘I was keen that she immortalise my dog, Cohiba, but also wanted to put myself in the picture. Nina pulled it off brilliantly. Cohiba and I are delighted!’
