I’ve been really obsessed with painting nebulae lately. I love the colours used in false colour imaging (blue for ultraviolet image data, green for altitude, and red for infra-red) and how they represent information that the human eye is incapable of seeing. I also love the cloudy, atmospheric, glowing effect this creates.

Here’s my newest set of cosmic paintings, a nine-panel grid entitled “Nine Nebulae”.
Bit of a misnomer there- it’s really seven nebulae, a galaxy and a supernova remnant… I liked the alliteration in the title, OK?
These astronomical illustrations are all for sale! Please contact me for pricing.
