I am a contemporary realist painter of portraits, landscapes and still life who lives and works in rural Lancashire, North West England.
Recognised for my accurate representational painting style and ability to capture intricate fine detail, the majority of my works are realist fine art oil paintings on canvas created entirely from life or from a combination of studies and photographs taken during live sittings or situations.
One of my portraits, “Not a Penny More” was selected for the 21st National Open Art Exhibition in 2017 and displayed in London. The portrait was also voted into the top 10 of the MS Amlin World Art Vote and went on to be exhibited at the National Football Museum in Manchester as part of the Football Is Art exhibition in 2019.
As well as completing house portrait commissions I also paint portraits of people, pets, landscapes and still life paintings with a selection of recent works available to buy direct from my online shop.
Please bear in mind that I accept commissions alongside my other art projects and sometimes there may be a waiting list. Clients are served on a first come first served basis but I will always strive to meet any special requirements.
I consider Herbert James Gunn, John Singer Sargent, George Romney and Henry Raeburn as inspirational artists.
