Welcome to my portrait web site…
|If you are searching for contemporary, quality portrait work then you have come to the right place. Whether a gift for a friend, a painting of yourself, or a large oil canvas to commemorate a special occasion, I am sure I can help. To see examples of my work please click on one of the Galleries above.
A Future Treasure
Portrait painting has once again established itself as an important record for our modern age. The photographic image has become an unsatisfying, disposable item, typified in glossy throw-away magazines or ‘never to be printed’ pictures on your digital cameras. People are now looking for a more permanent record of their loved ones.
A commissioned portrait will stand the test of time and the memory you immortalise on canvas will be a treasure for years to come. This must be one of the most personal gifts anyone could be given.
My Portrait Technique
One of the constant attractions I find in portrait work is the magical moment when the inanimate materials of pigment and oils turn into a living painting. A careful flick of white suddenly becomes the glint in a person’s eye or a subtle stroke of shade becomes the start of a smile. It is the combination of both art and craft that produces a successful portrait.
I can work from both a traditional ‘sitting’, photographs, or a combination of both, whatever is convenient for you. My preferred medium is oil, either painted on linen canvas or board, depending on the subject. Each painting comes with a simple baton frame (black or natural wood finish), boards come unframed. Any other questions please let me know.
All the best.
