Artist's Statement   I try to work closely with my clients and strive to produce paintings which capture the sitter whilst being autonomous objects in their own right.

Statement      If working from life I would require 3-9 sittings of approximately 1-2 hours each. This will vary according to the size of the canvas and the availability of the sitter. When working from photos i would require 1-2 hours to make an observational drawing so as to get to know the sitter and to take photographs.  
Normally the sittings would take place at the sitters residence (or in the artists studio in Jersey) I am more than happy to offer advice on framing and will travel if requested.
