Artist's Statement   My aim is to capture the sitter's personality through sound draughtsmanship and detailed observation to achieve a strong, lively and subtle image.  
The relationship between myself and the sitter involves careful listening on my part so that I understand exactly what each person is looking for in their portrait.

Statement      At the initial meeting I get to know the sitter and we discuss ideas. At this stage it is also useful to meet the sitter in their surroundings.  
Subsequent meetings take place in my London studio with preferably a minimum of five sittings.  
I prefer to work the entire portrait from life if time allows. Photographs are also sometimes necessary as reference.
