Why I create art

Creating art is how I celebrate the people, animals, experiences and natural world that inspire me.

My mission is to use my skills to help you tell your stories and create beautiful artworks that have meaning for you.  As art has tremendous power to connect us all.

Have a commission in mind?

Do visit my Portrait Commissions page which explains how it works.

Winner of the Judges' Prize at Egypt's first biennale (2013), I've exhibited at the Milan Expo, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and National Open Art exhibitions (2015).  And I exhibit each September as part of BEAT (the Borough of Ealing Art Trail) open studios.

I've taught drawing for Sketchout in the inspiring surrounds of the V&A, National Portrait Gallery, The Courtauld and Tate Britain and now teach drawing and oil portraiture for beginners for Open Ealing.
