About Me

PAINTINGS OF PEOPLE OF COLOUR AND COURAGE


I've spent pretty much my entire life making pictures.

It has sustained me both practically and emotionally; it has been my daily companion, my refuge, my working day and my silent comfort.

It has been a constant in my life, and I will forever be grateful for the fact that I can call myself an artist.

These days painting is less about making pictures to hang on walls and more about celebrating the story behind the people who model for me.

Everyone is fascinating, and everyone is a book waiting to be read.

Through painting I have met some inspiring, extraordinary people who have given so much to me.

I hope that they feel the paintings in some way return the compliment.
