About me

I am a full time professional artist based in Somerset, England.

Being lucky enough to fulfil my childhood ambition to become a portrait painter I enjoy painting people of all ages as well as their pets. My portraits are based on photographs, often in informal poses and I love to create artwork that is not only a good likeness but captures the character of my subjects. Married to an architect, not surprisingly house paintings also feature in my portfolio!

Follow me on instagram to see recent portraits, work in progress photographs and images of my creative process inside the studio.
