Vaughan is also an artist with his work ranging across media from 3D design, buildings & furniture, to artwork in oils, watercolour, pastels, graphic design & photography. His paintings bring forth a naturalistic impact, in his more dramatic pieces he takes strong light and breaks it down, through water or fine sprays of moisture or equally, in the dead calm moody, still, haunting sea frets, where light is obscured. The east coast of Suffolk with big broad landscapes, the quality of light & famous big skies is his inspiration, painting views of Southwold, Suffolk and generally the landscapes thereabouts.
