To commision a portrait send me an email and I will get back to you shortly.

Photographic reference material I prefer to take myself using different poses, lighting and settings.  When the subject is not accessible a number of high resolution images can be emailed of placed in Drop Box. In this case the photographer must use various light sourses as well as shoot the subject from different angles so as to enable me to “get into the room” with the person.  I will work from my studio but will send you updates when required. After the portrait is complete and everyone is happy with the outcome I will arrange the shipment.

Please Note: Artwork that goes to Australia cannot have a wooden frame.

Mid Exam Blues

This oil painting was inspired by Caitlin’s hard work. I enjoyed the challenge of bringing out the mood of the moment, the interaction between the photographer (me) and the subject. The background was left largely unfinished hopefully adding to the narrative, studying is never over.

Sisterhood

Two sisters and occasional best friends sharing a rare moment of recharging. I kept the background busy and fragmented to enhance the rarity of the find, a peaceful moment of nothingness while absorbing vitamins.

The Madiba painting was auctioned in Dublin, Ireland

Richard in oils  on canvass.

Working from a series of photograph I took, I wanted to capture Richards quiet strength as well as his thoughtfulness toward others. His determination and success in sport inspired the contrasting colours, red for dynamic action and blue passive watchfulness. Hopefully, I have captured this strong and moving story.

My passion is wild life, the greener good and keeping life real. So if you require an oil painting of something wild that would be awesome.
