The human element has always featured heavily in my work, so it seems a very natural progression to move from painting figures within a landscape, to individual portraits of heroes, admirations and inspirations. People I love and admire particularly from my long-standing interest in music and popular culture, the pretty and the beautiful, alive and dead.
I’m interested in capturing the feeling of beauty and the feeling of presence in a pared-down style. The character and psyche without all the unnecessary details.
These paintings are available from Marvellous Art Gallery, Belvoir Street, Leicester.
