Since attending the renowned Heatherley's School of Fine Art, and studying the Portrait Diploma, my commissions are now leaning towards portraits and figurative paintings. I am well versed in this area due to my past training in Fashion Design, Live Illustrations, my love of Life Drawing and now the study of the human face and body as a formal oil portrait.
I am happy to visit those who wish to have their portrait created. I draw from life and take colour notes alongside photography of the client, comfortably in their home or a relaxed, informal setting that's real to them and has an emotional connection for them, (holding a keepsake, wearing something beautiful or sitting in an old chair they love). I then take this home and work on this over time, checking in with the client to ensure they're happy with the end result.
If you would like a chat about the possibility of creating a portrait of you or someone close to you, please do email me firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know any ideas you'd like created as possibly the most unique and beautiful gift for yourself or a loved one.
