I planned to be a painter, but becoming a portrait painter happened as commission followed commission. I love the challenge but, whenever possible, I try and introduce something in the painting which gives clues about the sitter. However, I am just as happy painting landscapes and still-lifes, and anything where I can use my imagination, such as views where the image is distorted to convey my own vision of contemporary life. I also love painting abstracts where I can improvise and explore colour and shape. They are a kind of intellectual and aesthetic game. But the bottom line is that I love painting, fine painting, imaginative painting, bold painting, and I have been commissioned to paint the imaginative as well as the straight portrait. I relish both types of challenge!
