"Working primarily in egg tempera, my aim is to produce paintings of heightened realism which convey a sense of stillness and contemplation.

The hallmarks of my work are clarity of composition which engages the eye in combination with a high level of detail which rewards close scrutiny.

I am happy to accept commissions and welcome discussion with clients regarding their ideas and requirements as I believe this to be part of the organic process of creating a piece of work...."
