What does your work comprise of?

My work is comprised of all subjects, from the inanimate to living forms using a range of medium – pencil, pastel, acrylic and oil.  However, my passion has always been toward figurative and portrait works in oil.

For me there is nothing more captivating than a living form and the most fascinating and beautiful are human beings.

When did you first get into art?

Like many children I started to draw as soon as I could hold a pencil. At secondary school Art was always my favorite subject; painting or drawing would help me relax and put me in a world of my own, filled with imagination and creativity.

How would you describe your style? 

I like to experiment with creating a vintage look, mainly using a variety of earth colours to give an appearance of an old sepia photograph. With this style of image I find notable figures in the music and film industry, past and present, make an ideal subject.

I enjoy working on more than once piece at a time – moving between paintings allows time to reflect and consider adjustments and drives my motivation to continue painting.

My painting touches a variety of styles including realism, impressionism and a hint of pop art. My work has been exhibited at Waterside Fine Art in Stratford upon Avon as well as local art festivals.
