Im a figurative artist, portraitist and illustrator. My work is normally observational but rich in colour and full of expression. I do like creating a bit of drama and tension in my work; unusual angles, a sense of awkwardness, an innate energy. My work celebrates physicality and flesh is my speciality. My portraits have to absolutely capture the essence of the personality I observe.
