“After completing my Illustration degree Arts University Bournemouth I took to the  easel again and began to paint portraits, taking inspiration from the likes of Jenny Saville and Lucian Freud.

Faces fascinate me but my main focus is always the eyes which really can be the window to someones soul; it never ceases to amaze me how a tiny change in someones eyes can completely alter a painting. I aim to go beyond the physical form and capture the essence of what makes a up the character of an individual person.”
