I specialise in fine art, realistic animal portraits, both domestic and wild. To me the eyes are the most important aspect of any piece, as they are the windows to the soul. I usually begin with the eyes and won't progress until I have captured the animals character. I love animals and enjoy portraying their personalities in my artwork. Recently I have expanded my range to include other aspects of the natural world. Working with photographs as references I like to zoom in to see the smallest of details. My work is predominantly realism in style, with an emphasis on encapsulating the essence of the animal or subject I am painting.
