Living locally in Hadleigh, Essex I specialise in animal portraiture. I am drawn to capturing the essence of the animal by focusing closely on the eyes, as Shakespeare's proverb said “The eyes are the window to your soul”. I enjoy the challenge of building textures and developing reflected colour within the subject, all of which have remained a passion since childhood when I first discovered my love of pastels.
I work on a commission basis producing animal portraits, but I do also work on other subject matter. In addition to painting for exhibitions I teach adults and children from beginners to intermediate and facilitate workshops/demonstrations.
