Matt is an award-winning British artist living and working in Dubai, UAE. A lifelong painter inspired by the natural world, and the beauty of nature.


Matt moved to Dubai in 2005, and after leaping to become a professional artist, he quickly established himself and gained critical acclaim for his landscapes and florals locally and internationally. 


Matt is committed to documenting the world's beauty, be it land, sea or sky and highlighting the changing landscape surrounding us through oil paint. With a genuine love for the outdoors, Matt's paintings often start as small onsite studies, painting Plein-Air in the deserts and mountains to capture true light and colour that can be transferred to the studio for more extensive work. Being predominantly self-taught has enabled Matt to develop a technique that is very unique to him, with a particular emphasis on bringing the feel of natural light into his work. 


He has taught and exhibited in the UAE, USA and Ireland.
