I have been painting Portraits and doing various forms of Decorative Art most of my working life. Though mainly self-taught, I spent a year in France in the Studios of Master Realist, Ted Seth Jacobs and gained a strong foundation in figurative techniques. Portrait work has included series commissions for the CBS TV network in LA and in 2015 a large canvas of the rapper Drake and twenty friends, for his LA home. I grew up in Africa and my twin passions as a child were Wildlife and Magic! Later in London I was the official “Flower Fairy” Artist for “Dragons of Walton Street” for eight years, before leaving to follow my own paths in Art. I then went to Italy and indulged in both the culture and some further classical studies at the “Angel Academy” in Florence. I work mainly in Oils and pencil but Acrylic and Water Colour sometimes too. I am also a part time Tutor for Central Sussex College and love to help others – to learn to draw in particular, since it forms the basis of all further endeavours in Art. My current non-commissioned work is about combining Nature with Magic and Imagination, attempting to express the colour and beauty which is all around us if we but look … and dream a little!
