Drawing, Painting

I’m drawn to real life that light or experience can turn into something that bit out of the ordinary. Commissions undertaken.

I paint portraits, cityscapes and interior scenes in Cambridge. Though my work is realistic I aim to draw the viewer in with abstract qualities and hook them with something of the unexpected. I’ve always been excited by those works where you wonder ‘why did the artist do that?’ and that is what I hope to achieve too. After more than a twenty-year hiatus I returned to painting and drawing in 2013, since then achieving ‘Visitor’s Favourite’ five times at the Cambridge Drawing Society’s biennial exhibition.
