Working from his studio in Kent, UK; Ian has exhibited widely across the UK, and internationally including India, Dubai, UNESCO World Heritage Site Casa Batllo, Barcelona and has works in private and gallery collections internationally.

His works form part of a continuing exploration since 2002, of the natural environment and landscapes shaped through time, seasons, and the elements, His abstract landscapes, form different visions of the natural world, visualising the ethereal energies of the elements and the physical strength and fragility notably experienced through his hand stitched yarn canvases Earthscapes series.
