The ethereal beauty of flesh and the fluidity of draped fabric combine to captivate me and fuels my desire to paint.

My subject matter is the female form

Get in contact

I have always worked on linen or flax canvas which I prepare in a way to expose the natural beauty of the material. I build up the paint in fine layers as I like to emphasise the sense of light in my paintings.

I hope to create a sense of luminosity

I aim to capture the essence of my sitters character in the most natural way.


The balance of tone and colour, as well as the way that lights plays against the body, combine to create something really quite beautiful and captivating to me. There is a definite sense of ambiguity which I deliberately create by choosing to focus on the body rather than the face. I leave my backgrounds empty as the negative space is an important compositional tool.

Composition is a puzzle I enjoy to explore through my paintings.
