My paintings are concerned with people and context. Inspiration comes when I imagine the dramatic possibilities for representing
someone I have seen or met. The challenge of realising the vision is both aesthetic and organisational.
Most of my work is in oil, which I like for its unrivalled versatility and richness. It has been noted for its quality and psychological depth, conveyed through strong use of composition and a subtle working of mood. It has been described as realist, visionary, enchanting and contemporary. Art critic Brian Sewell has spoken of my paintings as “impressive” and “remarkable”.
I have previously had studios in Clerkenwell and at the Chocolate Factory in Wood Green, North London. My studio has since
moved to Cambridge, where I devote much of my time to portrait
commissions and exhibition pieces.
Enquiries about commissions or sales are welcome, as are visits to my studio which can be arranged by appointment.
