I began my working life as an illustrator and Graphic Designer, both of which have had a strong influence on the way that I approach painting. A few years ago I stopped my commercial work in favour of pursuing my own artistic interests and re-discovered oil painting. I am fascinated by the human form and its infinite variety. In particular I find the beauty and strength of the female figure breathtaking in its rhythm and complexity. Capturing the essence of femininity is one of the driving themes in my work.
I am always on the look out for new models to work with. If you are a local model and would like to see yourself immortalised in an oil painting please feel free to contact me. I take my own photographs, but only use them for reference and always provide the model with copies along with a reproduction of the painting.
