Portraits seen here involved sittings and/or photos taken from life. Many hang in private collections worldwide and I'm happy to say have won National and International Awards.
I seek to create work that is not merely a likeness but a beautiful painting, a jewel to adorn the wall of a home or a gallery. My portraits are created using pencil on paper or painted in egg tempera on traditional gesso board which allows a softness of colour and sensitivity to detail.
Commission prices vary due to time and size (from £200 for a portrait drawing from Artist's own photographs). I understand that a portrait commission is a valuable commitment and the relationship between the Artist and the portrait family is important to both parties.
