About

I’m an Ealing based figurative artist specialising in telling the stories of people,  including those of performers, and animals.

I have over a decade's experience in traditional painting and drawing, along with a Diploma and Post Diploma in portraiture from The Heatherley School of Fine Art in Chelsea.  I have taken part in exhibitions and art fairs both at home and abroad and have undertaken many private commissions.

I'm on a mission to use my skills and experience in oil on canvas, mixed media and digital paintings, as well as drawings, to help you explore and celebrate your stories through meaningful, inspiring artworks that enliven the walls of your home - and your imagination. And, uniquely, as an ex journalist and broadcast news pr, I can tell your stories in words. 

I have portrayed well-known sitters, such as the BBC’s Kate Adie and John Humphrys whose portraits you can see in my portfolio. My portraits of adults similarly mark special moments in your own history - or act as a daily reminder of where you belong. My child portraits chart the progress from tots to teens and strengthen children's self-esteem and confidence.

My performer art brings your personal enjoyment of music, comedy, dance or circus acts to your home. With the same attention you give your playlists, record collection, or ringside seat, you select the performers you know, those you’ve yet to discover - or a statement artwork that evokes the soundtrack of your life, or your experience of a live act.  

As resident artist of the legendary music venue the Half Moon PutneyI practise my art in another community and I find myself in good company, as former resident musicians have included Elvis Costello and Steve Marriott.  Over the past six years, I have produced many original artworks from household names to relatively new kids on the block. 

I enjoy collaborating with musicians to capture you in a way that is in step with your brand, licensing artwork for album covers and posters.  I also welcome rock star experience commissions where I give wannabes a rock star experience and a permanent reminder of your 15 minutes of fame in a portrait of you!
