Artist's Statement   My aspirations in painting are rooted in the subtle effects of light and atmosphere. I am inspired by such masters as John Singer Sargent and Anders Zorn, Whistler and Velasquez. The ability to describe light through careful manipulation of tone is something I believe is central to my work. Through control of edges and colour I aim to create an atmosphere that allows the viewer to put something of themselves into the work, drawing them in to make viewing the painting an interactive experience.

Statement      I would require an initial meeting with the client of around 2 hours to discuss their requirements for the artwork and to decide upon the pose. I will then work from life in the client’s house or workplace to complete the portrait. This typically takes 2 to 3 sittings of around 2 or 3 hours for a head and shoulders commission. Where required with young children I would take a number of photos and sketches, finally completing the work from life. However in most cases the best results are achieved working from life. I will return to the client 6 months after the completion of the portrait to varnish the picture.
