Painting Slices of History

Simon Kelsey asked me to paint his home, which I subsequently learned was once the home Christopher Pickering, a Hull trawler fleet owner. I love painting homes, each commission I undertake feels like a privilege. This Coltman Street house is layered with history, with Christopher Pickering’s business partner taking over and then in the 20s the house turned into a children’s clinic before becoming flats. It fell into disrepair and was lovingly restored. Check out Simon and Catherine’s page for their restored Coltman Street home at

All commissions are works of love and each one is different. I am always delighted to undertake them. I generally work on an A4 sized canvas and charge £60. Other options are available.
