Hello, and welcome to my website. I am an artist based in Wirral, and I specialise in painting and drawing commissioned portraits.........of grandparents, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, partners, children, family groups.......and also much loved pets. More often than not these pets are cats or dogs, but I've had the pleasure of working with horses too. I'm a novice sailor, and latterly my works have included boats of fellow sailors. I would say that often someone will simply want a portrait of, for example, their gorgeous Labrador who is also their "best friend", or their long-awaited adorable baby, but more usually a portrait is commissioned as a gift. But the reason doesn't matter, as I've loved all my subjects, and they have all been so unique. My favourite drawing medium is soft pastels, and my favourite painting medium is acrylics. I do use oil, but you have to be patient because of the time it takes to dry! I have a B.A. in Fine Art (with Honours), and am a private tutor, mainly for GCSE and A-level students. Covid-19 has currently put a stop to my drawing classes, but I sincerely hope to resume these in the future. And Covid-19 is a more than good enough reason to put some joy into your life with some bespoke, exclusive artwork.
Finally - "Painting a portrait is not just painting a picture, it is the celebration of a person".
