I am a professional portrait and figurative artist painting in oils. I paint and teach from my studio in Wood Green.
I have painted people from the unknown to the very well known, my sitters are often people who are interesting characters with interesting lives. They range from theatrical sitters, (Celia Imrie, Lesley Joseph) through to a street artist (Ben Wilson -The Chewing Gum Artist) to Jeanne Pacella – featured above – a Vintage hat designer.
I am also known for my ‘Flora and Fauna’ paintings focusing on small sections of plant life using subjects from both my garden and indoors.
I have been shortlisted for the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize and also selected for exhibition with The Royal Society of British Artists, The Royal West of England Academy, The Society of Women Artists and The ING Discerning Eye.
