I love doing portraits. In my artwork, I aim to capture not just the shape of the subject, but also their character and personality. Perhaps because of this, I often end up doing close-ups of my subjects. I find that eyes set the set the expression and tone for the whole artwork, as well as the provide insight into an individual’s personality and character, and so I will often create many (many!) different eyes until I can feel the animal coming to life… Portraits are always the biggest challenge for me, but I love working on them!
I have done a range of portraits, from pets to birds and wildlife (selected few shown below), and I’m always up for a new challenge…. So let me know if you’d like to commission a portrait!
