I am a figurative artist who enjoys portraying people and figures in a different way. Years have been spent absorbing and studying all kinds of art through reading, viewing and examining works and techniques both on-line and more pleasingly, at Galleries. I especially appreciated the hugely exciting Abstract Expressionism exhibition at the Royal Academy last year, and the George Bellows one, also at the Royal Academy, a few years ago. I paint in oils and watercolours, and draw in charcoal, pencil and ink, and have developed my technique creating monotypes. I am especially drawn to characterful faces and dancers for my subject matter.

Commissioned work

I offer commissions. You would need to contact me to discuss requirements, wishes and the process of achieving this.
I can also offer 2 hour demonstrations.

I like to rotate my images and limit them to five at a time, so there is more work available. Do contact me to discuss my work or any projects you would like me to do by contacting me either by the Contact Form on this page or via my Facebook page, see link below.
