Rail art for some reason tends to lack recognition within some fine art circles but many painters such as Turner, Monet and W.P.Frith included a train in their paintings, not forgetting J.C.Bourne and others who recorded the railway in its early development. Paintings of steam trains, traction engines and other aspects of our industrial heritage can be truly stunning images describing a past era and evoking particular memories for many.

As an artist and illustrator I find that the subtle russets and ochres of worn rusty metal on a weary but proud steam locomotive, the range of greys of the masonry and iron on a Great Central railway bridge straddling the still backwaters of a canal and the almost beguiling play of light giving majesty to the ornate structure of a half empty gasometer are some of the things of our industrial heritage that give purpose to my painting.
