Welcome to the blog and this collection of original artwork inspired by The Lord of the Rings and J.R.R Tolkien's wider mythology of Middle-earth. Aside from the influence of the source writing of Tolkien influence is also drawn from Director Peter Jackson's film trilogy (2001-2003) and the highly regarded Tolkien illustrators Alan Lee and John Howe. The magnificent musical score written for the film trilogy by Howard Shore also holds a significant influence upon the atmospheric and evocative quality of the works in this collection. From Mordor to the Misty Mountains combines landscape, miniature-scale and composite photography to depict locations, dramatic scenes and characters from the enduringly popular stories.

News interview with ITV Tyne Tees 3rd Jan 2013

Yesterday was the day that Tolkien fans the world over celebrated Tolkien's 121st birthday, and by a very lucky turn of events it was also the day that I was approached by ITV Tyne Tees covering the North-East of England to do a TV feature about my collection of Middle-earth Art.
