I paint animals to commission for both personal and business purposes.
I was born in London and now live in Hertfordshire as a practicing artist. My love of painting was fostered as a child and later developed through studying at degree level at the University of Hertfordshire.
I enjoy photographing and painting animals both wild and domestic. Animals bring a certain presence to a place or situation and you can't help but admire them.
I hope that my work brings that same intrigue and presence by it's scale and attention to detail.
Acrylic paint on canvas is my prime medium as it is fast drying, quickly enabling layering of paint, creation of texture and use of vibrant colours.
I am a member of the Association of Animal Artists and Barnet Guild of Artists
