Originally from New Zealand, I am a realist artist now based in Wokingham, Berkshire. Working mostly in charcoal or oils, I specialize in figurative paintings and drawings of people and animals with a very special love for equine and wildlife subjects.

I believe that the eye is truly the window to the soul and it is here that you will find the character, emotion and often, the beginnings of a conversation. I will usually start a portrait here and will only move on once I feel that the eye is 'alive' with enough depth and intensity. Sometimes, just sometimes, when the magic is right, I can have a conversation with those eyes while I paint.

I am delighted that my work can be found in private collections both locally and around the world as well as gracing the walls of corporate premises. In addition to taking on commissions, I release collections online and regularly exhibit at Contemporary Art Fairs.
