Commissioning a Portrait
Commissioning a portrait can be a daunting prospect but I can guide you through the process from start to finish. You can choose whether you would like me to work from digital photographs (the easier option) or from a series of sittings (the more traditional approach)*. Good communication is key to a good portrait and I will be happy to discuss your needs further. Please click on the button below for more information.
* Please note that I can only work from photographs for equestrian and animal commissions.

All proceeds go to NHS Charities Together.
Portraits For NHS Heroes
I recently had the pleasure of being involved with the #portraitsfornhsheroes campaign on Instagram and painted the portrait of the wonderful Susan, a neonatal nurse from the Midlands. It's a fantastic project originating from artist Tom Croft, in which artists can offer their talents to NHS staff for free; a thank you for their hours of dedication.
If you are an artist then I highly recommend getting involved with the project. If you are an NHS staff member then you should check out the #portraitsfornhsheroes hashtag and see the artists currently offering portraits (artists will have posted a green 'canvas' indicating that they are available).
Jackson's Painting Prize
I was fortunate enough to have my piece 'The Real Me' Longlisted for 'Jackson's Painting Prize 2020. It was an honour to be one of the final 445 entries from a staggering list of over 5,000.
