Hi and welcome to my website! I have been working as a portrait and wildlife painter since leaving Art College in 2005. I have exhibited widely in galleries, fairs and competitions across the UK and internationally.
Growing up on old farms in the countryside in the South of England, I was surrounded by an array of animals and after travelling to Kenya, started to have a keen interest in wildlife and conservation. My first solo show was in support of a gorilla orphanage in Gabon, where I spent 6 incredible weeks.
More recently I have been experimenting with multi-media from my studio in Cape Town, while continuing to take on commissions in the UK.

Please contact me for prices, these depend on the size and content of the portrait. I can either come and take the photos myself, paint from a photo you already have or I can send you a detailed outline on how to take the photos yourself.
I look forward to hearing from you :)
