As well as humans I also portray animals, including dogs, cats, horses and even once, a mirror carp! I can work from life where this is possible or from your own photos. I can take them for you too, when subject and location allow. I am based in the South East, near London. For Clients further afield and abroad, I usually work from your photos, send digital updates and get full approval before sending the completed Portrait safely and fully insured. I am also willing to travel and do on location work and will quote for this individually. Please email enquiries or photos to me here mailto:email@example.com for free advice and quotation or use the contact details at the end of the page. To date I have hundreds of very happy clients and you can hear from some of them on the Client Testimonials page, link above
I have been painting Portraits and doing other Decorative Art for most of my working life. Largely self taught, I also did some Classical training in Italy and spent a year in the Studios of Master Realist, Ted Seth Jacobs, in France. My specialty is in capturing the individual spirit, as well as physical likeness of the subject. This is expected in good Portraiture but I think it spills over into my general Wildlife and Equine art too. I love all animals but Arabian horses are a special obsession and I love to paint them whenever I have time to spare! I was lucky enough to meet the wonderful young stallion Om el Belissimo in California in 2012. and as you can probably see from my face; lost my heart totally!
Like many Animal Artists I am deeply concerned with the threats faced by so many of our iconic species in today's world. I try to use my Art to help; both by contribution to effective Conservation groups and indirectly by sharing images I hope may help to remind people what we stand to lose if they go forever.
I have exhibited with several Art Societies and major shows including The Society of Women Artists in Westminster, The Wild Arts Society, The Chelsea Annual Art Fair, the Sussex Ashdown Artists and most recently, the Association of Animal Artists, of which I am proud to be a Member.
Past commission clients have included the CBS television Network in the USA, Dragons of Walton Street and Angel Interiors in London, as well as numerous private commissions. Some of my Equine and Wildlife Art is sold as prints in the US by "Tapestry Oils". Some of my original Paintings are available here
