I produce impactful original drawings & oil paintings in the moment of real people. Through them I explore themes of separation & connection, seeking to blur the boundaries between illustration & fine art.
Performers inspire me, both on the street & in venues, & I aim to capture the creative energy that comes from performing live. I’m Resident Artist at The Half Moon Putney, one of London's iconic music venues where my work is also on show.
I’ve completed a series of portraits of some of best known names in UK broadcast news including the BBC's John Humphrys & Kate Adie & welcome commissions of adults, children & performers. I’m a founding member of the Lots Road Group of portrait artists who met when studying at Heatherleys, one of the few art colleges in Britain that focus on portraiture and figurative painting. Winner of the Judges' Prize at Egypt's first biennale (2013), I’ve exhibited at the Milan Expo, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and National Open Art exhibitions (2015).
I’ve created a series of oil paintings featuring bathers which hold up a mirror to a love that binds us all - of being by the sea.
I also tutor drawing in the inspiring surrounds of the V&A, National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain and The Courtauld for Sketchout.
