Artist's Statement   “There is a new trend emerging, people are beginning to commission figure studies, usually of women, occasionally commissioned by themselves. Rather than hiding, women nowadays wish to celebrate their bodies. As a means of recording for posterity, people feel photography is too crude and graphic, but find an informal painting of themselves much more evocative. In addition, there has been a revival of the renaissance tradition of nudes, and it is now fashionable to have a modern nude hanging in the home. A figure study is ideal for those who want to be more ‘risky’ and less conventional in their commissions. They can have a nude hanging on their wall and only the subject of the painting need know who it is.”

Statement      “A sitter may feel embarrassed at the onset of a figure study, but this is very short-lived once the sitter realises I am ‘breaking them down’ into blocks and daubs of colour. Although it is an impersonal process on the one hand, I also like to involve my subjects in the painting from the start. I prefer that the sitter come to my studio where I usually require five to seven three-hour sittings, after the first hour the sitter is encouraged to view the painting and make their comments and views felt. They are involved throughout the process which makes for an enjoyable experience.  
The artist requires approximately five to seven three-hour sittings. The commission does not come framed and I prefer to leave this process to be arranged by the sitter.”
