Artist's Statement   I enjoy, and try to exploit, the capacity of watercolour to capture the subtleties of the human face and consider it an underused medium for that purpose. I come to each commission with an open mind, and allow the approach to be decided by the character of the sitter and the atmosphere of the surroundings
 
 

Statement      I aim to produce a sympathetic portrait of the subject, and to that end try to spend a little time becoming aquainted with the client, preferably in their home surroundings. Sketches done on the spot are used to arrive at alternative compositions which are then discussed between artist and client. Photographa are taken and the portrait is produced in the studio.
