My work explores the genres of landscape, still life and portraiture. With portraiture I normally work to commission. I work in acrylic paint on board or card building images over a period of time. I use photographic sources, either taken at face-to-face sittings or through the sharing of images. Some of these images come from social media sources. These are always images that speak to me in some way. I use colour, line, composition and mark to evoke an emotion or develop the narrative within an image. My portraiture often makes reference to art history, literature.
