I have a travelling studio – an easel, set of pastels and a flask of coffee and I’m happy. I’ll draw in an open field or warm cosy studio but love the bustle of people and the conversations they bring. I’ve enjoyed working at local events with my work displayed and working on a recent commission whilst people potter and chat. I’m well known for portraits of people’s pets, for me, it’s all about capturing a personality, creating something that looks real. With everything I paint I want the viewer to feel they can walk in or my subject is just about to jump out!
