“I have been painting from an early age and my motivation is my true love of art. My style of painting is very varied and can cater for any style my clients require. I like to paint with good quality brushes, but also work with palette knives, cloths and spray cans where necessary to create the right effect. I can paint in an expressive style, sometimes with fine detail, sometimes spontaneous, applying layers of paint and adjusting the overall look as the piece progresses.

I love using bold and vivid colours which have a fantastic richness and depth, that really make the painting stand out and have life. I am yet to discover where in my sub-conscience or indeed where in my cultural heritage the colours come from but it is helping me to create an individual style which I feel can only be a good thing!

The subject matter of the portraits and paintings I am commissioned to create are varied; through painting I see emotion in faces where feeling, passion, angles and mood are prevalent. My pet portraits are particularly popular as this is often a lifelong memory of a beloved pet captured forever for the family.

I am constantly learning through observations, sketching and painting which I do whenever and wherever I can … every painting is always an exciting journey!”
