Having been involved for many years in the 'Racing Game'. I intend to include a series of paintings reflecting my love of horse racing. My style lends itself to the more atmospheric qualities of racing. I try to recreate the  mood of some of my memories of horseracing. I love the excitement of the galloping horses, the bright colours, the thundering noise and the bursting energy of the horses and jockeys. 

This range will deal with horse racing industry from the view of a true enthusiast. The planning, plots, coups, glitz, glamour, anitcipation and excitement - all part of the 'Racing Game'.

I spent many happy times with a very close friend, experiencing the ups and downs, fun and excitement of the racecourse. Sadly my friend Bill passed away several years ago and my new work is in no small measure a tribute to him.

The bond between horse and jockey is very much 'In the Balance' and can mean the difference between winning and losing the race.
