It seems I was born drawing. It always came naturally to me. From a
very early age my grandmother would take me on painting trips. As a
child my drawings and photographs were published in local media, and
when I was only ten I was awarded second place in the international art
competition, The Young World Art Awards.
I am Mum to a timid British Blue and a not so timid 7 year old
daughter! I have great respect for my subjects and I see in pets and
children a beautiful vulnerability and sincerity which I am continually
seeking to capture in my portraits. And this is why I can promise to
produce for you the very best portrait possible, one that you feel you
really look into, not just look at.
My paintings are for everyone – from pet breeders to TV
personalities and anyone who wants to see the ones they love captured on
canvas. Seeing a client’s reaction when they view their portrait for
the first time is an immense pleasure and is one of the reasons I
absolutely love being a portrait artist.
