I paint landscapes and portraits in  oils and acrylics usually on canvas.

Favourite subjects are  horses, people, mountains, seascapes, rocks and olive trees and Greece.


I have seven new paintings (90x90cm) at the Engine Room , Poundbury.

About Me

 Born and raised in a pit village on the Durham coast, a ten minute walk from what is now a National Trust owned bit of coastline  , there’s no sign of the pit anymore.

 Czech father, hence the weird name.

Went to Bristol University and managed to get an Hons. BSc in Experimental and Cognitive Psychology. Studied Book and Periodical Production at the London College of Printing.

Many different jobs;

printer , art shop manager, teacher and explainer at the Science Museum !

On February 29th 2012  ran away from home  and went to Kardamyli in the southern Peloponnese, initially for 3 months but it ended up being quite a bit longer. I discovered that paint dries very fast there.

 Now living in  Portland.
