I have been painting portraits of animals and people for almost 30 years. I have exhibited in London in Dover Street and at the Mall Galleries and in various locations throughout the uk. I paint mainly in acrylics and occasionally in oils. I have a love of detail, strong colour and light in a painting. Whilst I respect the need to capture the likeness and character of my subject, I try to create a looser, less photographic style. I enjoy both coast and country and I am lucky to live in the the South Hams, which has inspiration in abundance for subjects for me to paint and for commissions.
