Elected 2021



View all artists

I am a portrait and figurative painter working largely in oils.  The landscape of the face and human form are my inspiration and I hope to bring something to a painting that will allow the viewer to make up their own mind about the sitter's thoughts at the time.  The 'ordinary' fascinates me and if possible I like to inject a bit of humour when the subject allows.  

I took part in 'Portrait Artist of the Week', a weekly online programme during the pandemic, winning one of the weeks and coming third in another and also painted 8 portraits for the 'Portraits for NHS Heroes' initiative, one of which is published in the book  by Tom Crofts.
