Light is at the heart of all that is visual and it is a major aspect of what drives my artistic vision. I enjoy exploring and experimenting with various lighting effects and find it an endless source of inspiration. I like the drama and three dimensional rendering that chiaroscuro offers and my aim is to explore fully various methods of capturing light within portraiture.
Though my inspiration stems from a classical tradition I want to create works that capture modern people. I aim through the medium of both oil and pastel to explore the art of portraiture fully, learn as much as I can about composition, light, expression and to create portraits which fully reveal each individuals unique identity.
