Artist's Statement   I am very fortunate to be a portrait painter and to love everything about it, not just the painting part but I have always found meeting new people and the challenge of painting them, fascinating! I'm always trying to improve and hope to make each new portrait better than the last, in other words I want to make your portrait the best I have ever done.

Statement      I can paint on site from life or entirely from photographic reference although my preference is to use a mixture of techniques to heighten the visual relationship. Getting to know the person being painted is the most important part of the process so I begin with life sittings. During relaxed conversation at your home or office (a place of your choice) I will make some drawings and take some photographs. I carry out most of the work in my studio but will send you an update or preview when required. Finally I return to complete the portrait from life, only a few sittings should be necessary at this point and I welcome any comments and suggestions for the final touches. After the portrait is complete and everyone is happy with the outcome I arrange a convenient time for it to be delivered..
