Painting on Canvas & Screen

Colour emphasises expression and mood, bringing stories to life. Drawing inspiration from life and people, I love using any medium, though probably spend more time working with oil paints and digital painting.

My love of traditional (hands-on) painting and drawing techniques, have shaped my approach to digital painting; where freehand lines and individual brushstrokes slowly come together to form the finished artwork.

Art for me, tends to centre on the figurative and emotional aspects of life.

Portraits in Oil


Like the waxing and waning phases of the Moon, light moves across our faces. We mirror ourselves in others; seeking similarities, differences and a sense of belonging.

These paintings explore faces from young to old, through the play of light and a monochromatic palette mixing shades of blue.
