My portrait of a migrant at Bisce, Hungary for World Migration Day

‘A migrant at Bicske Hungary’ is an oil portrait on canvas inspired by a photograph by Associated Press photographer Petr David Josek. The painting is SOLD.

A former print news journalist and senior PR for BBC and Sky News, I retrained at The Heatherley School of Fine Art in 2010 in portraiture in oils and am a founding member of the the Lots Road Group of Portrait Painters.

I sometimes create works linked to the news agenda, as with this portrait of a migrant woman looking out of a bus window. I have sought to capture the feeling of being forced to leave one’s home.  I work both from life and agreed photos and you can learn more about the commissioning process, and how much it costs to commission a portrait on this website.
