I am a portrait artist working and living about forty five minutes outside of Brighton. Since a young age I have found portraits to be compelling. They have always fascinated me with the people they portray. A decent portrait draws the viewer in and offers them a connection with the sitter, whether it is presenting us with mood, character or emotion, there needs to be a little glint with which as the viewer you can identify with.
Throughout my studies the human being, in its many different forms was central to my work. Since leaving University in May 2010, I have continued to develop my figurative work. I am now concentrating on exhibiting widely, while working on private commissions.
