‘I developed a love of drawing as a child when I first drew my ageing auntie in the bath. I have always been fascinated by people, their character and the individuality of their faces, which has led to my passionate interest in portraits and figurative work. My nudes are real individuals, not generic or idealized. I endeavour to capture the essence of a person and their own unique qualities.
I am always inspired by the drama of light, and the way it shapes and changes objects enhances composition and creates mood. My favourite medium is oils.
