Hi, I am an experienced portrait painter who has worked with music/band fan clubs and as a freelance artist. Most notably I have worked with the, "Dubliners" the Irish Folk band in Dublin itself and from their English base. I am in the process of creating my website which will be advertising my portrait painting skills and my fantasy art skills. Each of which I have spent years honing and developing. I am looking for jobs which focus on either genre but I believe I am particularly adept at portraits as I have exhibited at the Usher Gallery, Lincoln in the recent past. Alongside my painting I have been writing fiction on a part time basis and would welcome any opportunity to develop this further.
