“I believe an iconic portrait must capture the spirit of the personality portrayed in the painting. I choose to work with pastels because they give radiance and light that is soft, yet intense at the same time. My art portrays people from the world of music, sport and film as well as people who have had a huge influence on humanity.
Contemporary iconography captures the essence of a person we look up to, admire and respect.
As a self-taught artist I choose to paint people who have inspired me. I continue to accept commissions and exhibit throughout the U.K. with my Art for Charity fundraising art auctions and exhibitions.”
