I am primarily a portrait artist who specialises in adults,
teens, children and occasionally pets.
I paint and draw in watercolour, oil, acrylic,
pastel, charcoal, colour pencil and graphite. I like experimenting with any
medium and material that inspires me.
Watercolour is one of my most favourite media at the moment, it's versatile and challenging with lovely qualties of
texture and colour. I have also been
using high standard artist quality coloured pencils for a number of years to
execute portraits and other subjects: this medium gives a refined quality
and allows for lots of detail, where watercolours allow for more freedom of
expression especially suitable for portraits, and it's also a wonderful medium
for landscapes, buildings, waterscenes etc.
Apart from these I have taken up Oil Paints recently and I have been
producing a number of portraits. A few are featured on my
. I continue to develop these skills as they are proving perfect for my
portraits as well as being very permanent. To me it is obvious just why the great
masters were such fans of oil paints!
