Was influenced by William Blake, Samuel Palmer, Stanley Spencer and Diego Rivera in the first years of studying fine art at Epsom School of Art in the early 1950's ?Narrative Themes? have been the backbone of the artists output especially in the 'staging of concepts' that became actual places. The viewer steps into an imaginary world which is not unfamiliar where a scenario is being played out that they can connect with.

'Memory of Carshalton' 1980
An 8ftx10ft acrylic on canvas was the centre piece for ?War Babies? show at Guilluame Gallozzi?s New York Gallery 1988
A scene set directly after the Second World War with artist as a six year old in his back yard in a Suburb of London that was on the German Bomber's flight path into central London. The air raid shelter is still standing steadfast against the flimsy structure or camp that the artist is daydreaming in.

'?Morphing artist?s mother and daughter in Morpeth? 1991 The image of the Peg and it?s setting is from the artist?s mother Win?s home town in Northumberland. Pegswood (close to Morpeth) and the Peg and it's setting is from Win the artists home town in Norhumberland. Pegswood and the Peg is a fantasy about Romany folklore that Win reveled in. Romanies have traditionally made and peddled pegs.
The photograph that inspired this work was taken when Win a few months pregnant with the artist in 1938.
Win is also a double of the artist's artist daughter Georgia Peskett.

Tree folk on the Rye. 1992
In London during the early nineties the artist anticipated ?Tree dwellers? in trees slated for destruction when extensive road construction was happening. Angels start to appear with the tree dwellers (after this, the mural of William Blake having a vision of angels on Peckham Rye, was conceived and executed). This was where the artist was working and residing at this time.

Angel duo one and two. 1992
These works helped to seed the Vision of Angels Mural created in 1993 close to Peckham Rye.

House of Hallward 1991
Artist reconnected with fellow artist Humphry Hallward who he had studied with at Epsom Art School from the mid 1950's. Hallward was living in Shropshire County at the time and these paintings were set there and were based on his family who were also artists. His grand father was Reginald Hallward who it is thought was the inspiration for the artist Basil Hallward in Oscar Wilde's A Portrait of Dorian Gray.

Out of Captivity 1991

Based on 'Tiger with captive audience' installation 1980 and
a prelude for the 'Tyger' in the Vision of Angels mural created see Pubic Art
