Gender MALE
Industry Arts
Location Solihull, West Midlands, United Kingdom
Introduction I am an artist, working in Solihull, Warwickshire, Birmingham and beyond.

I paint, mostly acrylic portraits of humans and animals. I exhibit original work and take commissions, including but not limited to pet portraits and family portraits.

To buy any of my existing art, or to commission a portrait - human or pet - whether you're in Solihull, Warwickshire, Birmingham or beyond, please visit or get in touch via the contact form below.

Whilst I am full of admiration for the technical ability of anyone who can perfectly recreate real life images on a canvas, I, personally, feel that paintings should be far more interpretive in their look and nature. I like to exaggerate colours, bringing out hues of a subject that the eye might not initially see, with a healthy mixture of quick, broad and rough brushstrokes, contrasted against more considered, finer details. I enjoy the feeling of satisfaction upon creating something pleasing to the eye and also the anticipation and escapism felt during the creative process itself.
