I am a full time professional artist with a focus on animal and pet portraits. I mainly use oil paints on board as this allows me to get the greatest richness of quality for the portrait, whilst also focusing on attention to detail.
I grew up in a small village in Suffolk and returned to my roots after completing my fine art studies at the Winchester School of Art and later completing a Masters degree in Contemporary Art and Philosophy at the University of Essex. Having completed a ten-week course in colour theory at Central St Martins more recently, I apply all of these elements to my work with animal portraiture.
I am based in Suffolk but, as I normally work from photographs of the subject, my clients can be from all over the UK.
I also work as a fine artist and exhibit regularly across East Anglia.
