Artist's Statement   "My aim is to paint what I observe as directly as possible with strength and clarity. I look for the qualities which make that person distinctive - no more, no less. A portrait is essentially a collaboration between artist and sitter. It should celebrate a period in the sitter's life, and by the end should work as a painting with a life of its own."

Statement      "I like to work for at least three consecutive days to get the painting established. The sessions are about two and a half hours long, morning and afternoon,with breaks in between. I prefer to work on site in the  
client's preferred space. It is important to work out with the client the  
logistics, making sure that there is enough light. The sitter needs to be  
as comfortable as possible and able to listen to music, talk or be silent. Ideally, interruptions should be discouraged. If the painting is large I can work away from the client, using drawings and photographs. The commission will not include framing although I will be happy to offer advice."
