I love painting portraits, love making that connection with someone on canvas. I want to get a good likeness, but also I aim to keep the painting lively and the brush-marks fresh & interesting.
I began concentrating on portraiture at the life class I attended for over a decade. The long and repeated poses gave me a great opportunity to study the face, working in lively and colourful brush marks to gain an accurate likeness. Moving on from there, I then undertook a few personal pieces – I painted my then baby, my husband and child, a friend, a self portrait etc. As a result of these self-lead projects, I began to be commissioned for private portraits.
If you would like to talk about a possible commission, do drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s work together to make something stunning! Please also see my Commissions page for more details.
