oil on panel 34 x 26 cm
purchased for the permanent collection of The Ruth Borchard Collection - November 2011
Formerly an illustrator, then art teacher, I have now returned to painting and drawing; exploring the traditional Fine Art themes of portraiture, landscape, interiors and still life.
Bold representational work, mainly in oils – sometimes in other media – is augmented by more creative and experimental approaches which can often influence the handling, or subject matter, of later paintings.
A longstanding involvement with life drawing, and the frequent experimentation with new methods of working this encourages, complements and adds new stimulus to the figurative and portrait work.
