Although the main focus of my painting has been portraiture and figure drawing, I find I am also drawn to intriguing objects and landscape. I love the excitement of beginning new work, to the satisfaction of a finished painting. Whether its ink, oil, charcoal or pastel I love to portray the emotion, form and light within every artwork. I find inspiration from artists such as Euan Uglow, Francis Bacon and Tai-Shan Schierenberg. 2020 - Acceptance to the Paisley Art Institute as an artist member.
