Gems from the Golden Age of Aviation

My obsession with Art Deco started quite by accident. I had always been fascinated by classic aviation and had dabbled in painting for many years, but it took a chance acquisition to merge the two.

In 2007, I was given a large surplus canvas by my sister - also an artist - who had been unable to find a use for it. While searching for possible styles to paint, I came across an Imperial Airways Egypt travel poster from the 1920s and was struck by the bold, exotic design. I painted my own version - and was instantly hooked. 20+ posters later, I have definitely found my signature style.

The period between the 1920s and 1950s was a Golden Age of aviation. Flying was in its infancy, and airlines touted it as the most luxurious, modern way to travel. Their sleek geometric posters offered a glimpse into the bright future that technology seemed to promise. It is this optimistic spirit that I strive to capture in my work.

So come fly with me. I hope you are as inspired as I am.

    I am trained as an aerospace engineer, but I am a very strange engineer. My interests extend well beyond equations and blueprints; I love art, literature, history, philosophy...everything really. This shop is an expression of these varied passions.
