I make commissioned portraits
of people, animals, and gardens
in oils, acrylics, egg tempera,
I also create mural and decorative
interior wall paintings.
My approach is collaborative and I will where possible find out something of the subject's inner world so as to incorporate this into the painting. This could involve finding out favourite colours and objects or your hopes and dreams.
I prefer to work from life as much as possible, whether working with children, adults, pets or gardens. This means that I would normally ask for at least one sitting to take photos and make drawings (up to four or five sittings would be ideal).
However I know this is not always possible and I am happy to discuss the options in your situation so do get in touch.
With mural painting I can work with a group or individual to realise a small or enormous design that subtly or magnificently enhances an interior space.
I also know an excellent framer or two who can frame your new artwork at very reasonable cost.
