I am a figurative painter. My main preoccupation is representing the human figure, ranging from life painting to an in depth analysis of an individual. I work from life. The process and the end product are of equal importance. I try to record what I see accurately, and although I work in a very controlled way, the discrepancies between what I perceive and what ends up on the canvas, due to inaccuracy, lack of control, or the limitations inherent in the chosen medium, result in a form of expressionism.
I occasionally undertake commissioned work and am represented in The Royal Collection, Windsor; the National Portrait Gallery; National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside; Trinity College Cambridge; University of Liverpool; Loughborough University; St Mary’s Hospital Medical School; the House of Commons; the private collection of HRH The Prince of Wales; and private collections in UK, Australia and USA.
