Working in oil, graphite or gouache, I like to look intently at objects and people, working in detail, but leaving out sections or backgrounds to enable the viewer to really focus and make their own narrative from the clues that I give.

Old photographs interest me – how they capture a moment and a memory, whether the memory is true or false. The story of the photo is handed down and the image takes on a life of its own.

I also undertake portrait commissions.
