Artist's Statement   “I am a figurative painter. My training has been wholly academic and I have strayed very little from that path, my heroes being Van Dyke, Rubens, Rembrandt, Gainsborough etc. Basically, I paint what I see in front of me. That composition of the sitter in his or her environment is very important and needs much thought and discussion. I aim to fulfil a portrait commission to the total satisfaction of the client and also myself.”
 
 

Statement      "A medium size portrait (20 x 25in) head to hands, would probably need up to eight sittings of one to one and a half hours. I am happy to go to he sitters home at their convenience. Equally I can paint the subject in my studio. I can also work very successfully from good photographs. Prior to starting I like to meet the sitter and have a full discussion as to clothes, position, props etc. I am also happy to advise and arrange framing of finished works."
