About

IMG_3325.jpg


Originally from England, I lived in sunny El Paso Texas for 16 years, before settling in gorgeous Salem, Oregon.

Since 1998, I have enjoyed a successful business as a professional freelance  artist, muralist and children’s book illustrator. My artwork can be found in private collections in homes and businesses in the USA, England and Mexico.

I am self-taught as an artist and enjoy creating art that has been described as “Realism with a touch of magic.”

I am inspired by many, many things. There is so much beauty in the world, and I try to bring some of it into my artwork. I love taking people to somewhere they can relax, or to make them smile.

I have an extensive mural portfolio of well over 450 projects, including restoration work at the historic Cortez Building in Downtown El Paso, Texas.

I now enjoy creating my small painted canvas art, Prismacolor, and ink drawings and running my online art Patreon page.

My first illustrated children’s book, a collaboration with my sister Carol Pavelin in England, ‘Red Shoes With White Squiggles’ is available here. 

Please follow me on Patreon, and Facebook.
