I paint mainly portraits and landscapes in oil or acrylic.
The portraits, with their intense colours, clearly marked shapes and bold contrasts are representational, but slightly stylized
I am interested in people; their personalities and the way in which these affect their appearance, stance and movements. In the fascinating exercise of studying faces, I aim to capture the likeness, character and situation of my subject.
Animal portraits are also a fascinating study.
I have completed a number of commissions and planning and executing such works is a source of fascination and delight to me as an artist.
My work can be bought online and in the Gallery of Wychwood Art. For animal portraits, human portraits and some landscapes please visit Wychwood Art. Click on 'Search for Artists' and scroll down to get to my name.
Some animal portraits can be seen at the Gallery at The Town Hall, Market Place, Deddington, Oxfordshire, OX15 0SE
The landscapes are much freer, with loose, expressive marks and thicker paint, which reflect the atmosphere of the scene and bring it alive emotionally.
