I am a painter, I like to do a lot of celebrity portrait work but also sometimes explore what’s in my head and my own inner philosophy in more abstract work
I paint in oils and like to use what I call my oil on foil technique where I paint over metal leaf to produce interesting lighting effects
I paint many celebrities from the sport, music and film worlds and also commissions, many of the celebrities I have painted now have my work hanging on their walls including Sir David Jason and Gary Neville
Most of my work is on large canvases for dramatic lifelike results
