Welcome to my website
I draw and paint the things I love in life. I hope you like them. If you do you can buy an original or a print or you can buy many of them as greetings cards or gift tags. I have drawn a wonderful pink Cadillac which is available on a T.Shirt !
If you like my style I am happy to take commissions to draw or paint something that is special to you. This might be a piece of furniture, a machine, a car, a plane or your own house. Price would be dependent on what and where the object is located but I am also happy to work from photographs
I have also have an Instagram page @paulsandilandsart

We have a range of prints & postcards available.
The influences on my work include Matisse and Raoul Dufy. I try to create simple effects with line and colour that is not a studied likeness but one that captures the essence of the subject – often old machinery. For instance I loved drawing a pink Cadillac which was in a sale in Banbury, also a Bugatti which was a commission and a Lagonda engine. I also enjoy drawing buildings with interesting architectural features, such as my picture of Zizzi’s Restaurant in Cheltenham, and the Chiesa San Lorenzo in Turin. In fact much subject matter has been found on travels, but more recently private commissions and subjects at home have captured my interest.
My main materials are pen and ink and colour washes on high quality paper, my favourite being the Italian make, Fabriano.
I have held exhibitions in London and taken part in Oxford art week
Artist in Residence for 3 years at The Theatre Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, see my prints of their pantomime Ali Baba and Beauty and the Beast and of the theatre itself.
