Artist specialising in people

I produce impactful original drawings and oil paintings in the moment of real people. Through them I explore themes of separation and connection, seeking to blur the boundaries between illustration and fine art.

Performers inspire me, both on the street and in venues, and I aim to capture the creative energy that comes from performing live. Going beyond performers' likeness, personality and mood, my art focuses on their movement, relationship with other performers and the audience. I’m Resident Artist at The Half Moon Putney, one of London's iconic music venues where my work is on show.

I’ve completed a series of portraits of some of best known names in UK broadcast news including the BBC's John Humphrys and Kate Adie and welcome commissions from individuals, businesses and performers. I’m a founding member of the Lots Road Group of portrait artists who met when studying at The Heatherley School of Fine Art, one of the few art colleges in Britain that focus on portraiture and figurative painting. Winner of the Judges' Prize at Egypt's first biennale (2013), I’ve exhibited at the Milan Expo, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and National Open Art exhibitions (2015).

I'm a member of a London Southbank artists' collective and exhibit in Skylark Galleries 2 on the 1st floor of Oxo Tower Wharf. I’m represented in Brighton by Kellie Miller Arts for whom I’ve created a series of oil paintings featuring bathers which hold up a mirror to a love that binds us all - of being by the sea. My open studios are in mid September as part of BEAT - the Borough of Ealing Art Trail. I'm a member of Putney Artists and am taking part on 5 and 6 October 2019 at the Half Moon Putney in Wandsworth Artists' Open House. I also tutor drawing in the inspiring surrounds of the V&A, National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain and The Courtauld for Sketchout
