Travels with my Art

Paintings and Photographs inspired by Travels Around the World

Cuba – the land of cocktails, vintage cars and the effortlessly cool

I’m not sure what made me first want to visit Cuba. Whether it was the film Strawberry and Chocolate, the Buena Vista Social Club, posters of Che Guevara, a curiosity of socialism or a love of Cuba Libre.

What I do know is that for a very very long time I had wanted to visit Cuba.

When I finally visited the largest of the Caribbean islands, I walked round in a daze, because there was a ‘photograph’ or  ‘painting’ opportunity on every corner.

Here are a selection of paintings and pictures from my trip there.
