“Virginia”: charcoal and chalk on grey paper. 83x48cm
I am a UK artist, classically trained in representational art, and having exhibited throughout the country. The main attraction of the Atelier method for me is the systematic development of skill-based training techniques to acquire the strongest technical skills possible in the visual arts. It is the quality of the draughtsmanship linked with the traditional methods that I feel are essential to producing works of art with realistic composition creating both elegance and emotional impact.
My figures and portraiture focus on capturing the reality and true character of the subject. I am inspired by those moments where I can see the essence of the person I am capturing, allowing them to live on in the painting or drawing.
