Artist

Saltwood, Kent, United Kingdom



I am a self-taught artist with a lifetime passion for drawing and painting. Whilst my subject interests are eclectic, I feel drawing the human form is one of the most challenging and absorbing. It is also one of the most rewarding, since it is, above all, a collaborative process underpinned by a strong creative partnership between artist and model.

Working mainly in charcoal and pastel, my preferred style reflects a keenness for chiaroscuro, a technique which relies upon the effective use of strong contrasts to achieve depth and volume.

My approach to a life drawing session involves making a series of gesture sketches backed up by reference photos. The latter serve as a helpful record of light and shadow when working on the final piece. 

I normally work for pay but, according to circumstances, am happy to consider working for trade -i.e, a finished drawing in exchange for modelling time.
