Portraiture is my passion. There is nothing so gratifying to me as watching a face emerge from the canvas; I love to watch the composition grow and come to life. From an early age I have taken inspiration and guidance from the works of the old masters. The tranquillity and detail of Vermeer and the Pre-Raphaelites has been a constant influence in the development of my craft, whilst the dark drama of Caravaggio was the primary inspiration for my collection of paintings exploring themes from Shakespeare and the broader theatre. I strive to capture the essence of my subjects and use handmade paints to bring light and lustre to my work. I offer portraits in oil paint or graphite pencil of people, children, pets and also weddings.
