Welcome to my website
My work is predominately representational and based upon close observation. However, when working I am trying to do more than simply achieve a faithful representation of nature. I feel my work is as much about an exploration of the materials involved as it is about the subject matter of the painting or drawing. I enjoy the tactile qualities of oil paint. I feel strongly that a painting should celebrate the material that it is created from. My paintings have a surface that reflects this, with highly visible brush strokes and, in many cases, a heavy build up of paint.
On this website you will find examples of my recent work, which I hope you enjoy. Please contact me if any of these paintings are of interest to you, or if you would like to discuss a portrait commission.
