A painting is timeless. A piece of fine art that is uniquely yours, or a gift to be enjoyed for generations. It can record a special place, capture the beauty of a sitter or celebrate the life of a loved one.
Great paintings capture the true likeness of a subject, in a way that portrays the unique details and features that make a person, pet or place special. From your initial enquiry to the final paint stroke, celebrating the true spirit of the subject is at the heart of my work.
I’m a contemporary realist painter and paint in a traditional, representational style. I can capture the essence of a person, pet or place with energetic alla prima portraits or paint in an academic style to bring a highly detailed and refined finish to a painting.
I complete commissions of a variety of subject matter including;
- house and other building portraits
- pet portraits
- still life
I enjoy painting entirely from life using traditional and classical painting techniques but can also work from photographs if the piece is a surprise gift or sittings aren’t possible. My paintings are a collaborative process and as a client or sitter your comments and feedback are key as the work develops.
