I began oil painting at the age of 12, turned to commercial art in 2003 and have developed my own personal style through exhaustive self tuition and ‘burning’ the midnight oil ever since. I display my artwork on my website, in galleries, publications, shows and exhibitions Worldwide.
The style of my artwork is contemporary realism, influenced and inspired by the romanticism of my favourite post renaissance Masters. All painted with a knife, a limited colour palette and mixing on the canvas!
