Artist specialising in people

I produce uplifting drawings & oil paintings of people, but also of flora & fauna, which capture the spirit of my subjects. My work includes commissioned portraits that make the perfect gift.

Performers inspire me, both on the street & in venues, & I aim to capture the creative energy of performing live. I’m Resident Artist at The Half Moon Putney, one of London's iconic music venues where my work is on show.

On London's Southbank I exhibit as part of an art collective Skylark Galleries 2 on the 1st floor of Oxo Tower Wharf. In Brighton I'm represented 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.

These online galleries provide a catalogue of work for sale & examples of my portraiture, including portraits of some of best known names in UK broadcast news such as the BBC's John Humphrys & Kate Adie. I’m a founding member of the Lots Road Group of portrait artists who met when studying at The Heatherley School of Fine Art & exhibit regularly on a theme.

Winner of the Judges' Prize at Egypt's first biennale (2013), I’ve exhibited at the Milan Expo, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters & National Open Art exhibitions (2015). I also tutor drawing in the inspiring surrounds of the V&A, National Portrait Gallery & Tate Britain for Sketchout I also teach a 3 day introduction to portrait painting in oils at Sketchout's Croydon studio.
