Isn't real art so fantastic! It is great to see that in the modern world full of ipads and electronic gadgets there are still so many people as passionate about creating art as myself. I have always loved painting. It's been a passion all my life, and over more recent years I discovered the pleasure of sharing what I have learnt with others through my workshops and classes I run at my home studio in Portsmouth. I am a photographic realist artist. I seek to bring as much detail and depth to my paintings and drawings as possible. My main areas of work are portraits, animals, historical and fantasy. Pastels, oils, acrylics and graphite are my main mediums, but I never let the opportunity pass to experiment with new or other mediums to present a painting in a different light, or to seek to enhance my subject. Experimenting in this way can be so exciting, as you never sure of the end result!
