I have live in Japan for about 17 or 18 years. I'm losing count. When I first arrived I had the silly notion that I would be living in a traditional Japanese house in a rice field. In reality, a place I'm forced to visit everyday, I lived in a 3 storey concrete apartment. It was actually quite a nice apartment apart from the two  cockroaches on the wall waiting to greet me on my arrival - my first encounter with these lovely bugs.

Despite quite a few disenchanting years in Japan, I did slowly start to find some traditional places. And here are a few paintings I've done of old Japan. I wish there was more to show.


Buy a Giclee print of one of these paintings on Canson Aquarelle Rag (watercolor paper), 8 x 10" (20.3 x 25.4 cms), $60 (includes shipping). Full refund if damaged during delivery. Please include the title of the painting. Please expect about 2 weeks for delivery.

I am an Englishman living and painting in Japan. I have now been here for over 17 years and have been painting for all that time. I love to travel around the Japanese countryside and find beautiful places to paint.
