Cambridge based portrait painter.

Here are a few portfolios of my paintings. One showing completed portrait commissions and a couple of others showing landscapes and figures.
Although it represents a fixed moment in a subjects life, a portrait will often expose youth and old age at the same time. Clients often remark on hitherto unseen family resemblances, too. Despite a photograph being instantaneous, the process of studying and re-working a face in oil paint produces a layered and complex expression that allows us to have an encounter with the sitter. When painting landscapes this feeling of being there can be frustratingly elusive until the last brush stroke, which will suddenly render a place, half remembered and in fleeting light, fixed forever in the oil.
