The past is a foreign country, but I try to find bridges to reach the other side. I find much of the inspiration for my paintings in art history, especially the Dutch and English 16th and 17th century. I try to find a dynamic between the past and the present in my painterly depictions of lace, silk, and velvet as well as my portraiture. My work has been exhibited at the Pastel Society, The Royal Institute of Oil Painters, the BP Portrait Award and elsewhere. I paint in oils and pastel and am available for commissions.
