Hi. I am a Northampton, UK-based portrait artist and illustrator using traditional drawing and painting techniques, with a style informed by the classical methods & popular appeal of post-war commercial illustration.

My design background and long association with the Mordant Music record label saw work evolve across branding, typography & package design. 

Transferring from remote digital media back to the tactile realm of physical mark-making has allowed me to both express the technical skills of likeness & realism, and to communicate my love for art via organic gesture, line & brush stroke.
