Artist's Statement   I treat a portrait as any other painting. Although capturing a likeness is the basic requirement, the most interesting and difficult part is to make the painting work on a number of deeper levels, particularly the psychological. I try to avoid mannerisms associated with style so that the portrait develops unique characteristics of its own through an intuitive reading of the sitter.

Statement      At the first sitting, requirements are discussed, an oil sketch is started and photographic references taken. If possible I prefer to work from sittings, usually of 2 to 3 hours each. With young children the sittings are shorter and photographs are taken for working-up the painting in the studio, finishing with fewer sittings.
