Then working as a Landscape and Garden Photographer, Artist and Designer until he moved to Cyprus designing and painting Figurative landscapes in his distinctive colourful style.

Derek loves and is inspired by colour, abstract shapes, geometry and Nature and the landscape and is passionate about being creative. He studies Taoism, Zen Buddhism, practices Mindfulness and his deep love of Nature which is not always obvious but  this is reflected in his work. He has recently taken Abstraction, Geometric Abstraction and OpArt and transformed them in new and colourful ways. 

Derek calls his new distinctive style, Modern Retro Artworks and presents new pieces. Although excellent for homes and residences, they are good solutions for Interior Designers, Commercial and Corporate Interiors and specialised Architectural applications. They make colourful statements; and through the use of bold colours and carefully organised shapes, they create environments that are simultaneously colourful, happy and peaceful.
