Painting and Portraiture

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a love of drawing and painting which was encouraged by my family, many of whom were artists.

I studied at the Central School of Art & Design in London. Whilst the majority of my career has been involved in graphic design I have continued a draw and paint.

The majority of the commissioned portraits are produced in pastel at two thirds to life size.

The landscapes are miniature works for the most part. I initially created these as studies for larger pictures. Pictures marked with a red dot are no longer available.

Currently, I draw, paint and carry out portrait commissions from my studio in Wiltshire in tandem with my graphic design work and other interests. Please click on the links to see more. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
