About Me

I trained in portraiture at The Heatherley School of Fine Art and have,since then, worked on regular commissions.  Some of them can be viewed here.

I paint in oils, normally on canvas but sometimes on board or primed paper.  I work from a combination of life and photographs.  If you would like to know more about commissioning a portrait please be in touch.

I also create pencil drawings of children.  These are normally head and shoulder portraits on A3 paper, drawn from photographs.  Again, please be in touch if you would like more information.

I have always loved working with people, so naturally gravitate towards figurative painting.  I'm interested in the boundary between representation and abstraction and want to keep exploring this alongside the portraits.
