For me, our family, friends and beloved pets have the most impact on our lives.
As a classically trained portrait artist, I work predominantly in oils on canvas to capture the personality, life and character of our loved ones.
Through my degree in Fine Art: Painting and Drawing, I was influenced by both classical portraiture and modern photorealism. My work today still represents a hybrid of these styles.
From my home studio in Guildford, I work from photographs to create a technically accurate foundation, and then incorporate looser moments to enhance the essence of the sitter.
My portraits aim to find the sentiment and nostalgia in
our precious moments, which can also hold a melancholy beauty.
If you feel inspired, I would be delighted to create a bespoke portrait of a loved one for your personal collection. Please enquire for more details, or simply enjoy browsing through my gallery with a nice cup of tea!
