The Apple Tree
'Having worked for many years in Bath and London as a magazine art director, a work related relocation and the arrival of children gave me the opportunity to pursue a long held ambition to try life drawing and portraiture.
Fast forward a few years and I now have several commissions under my belt with more awaiting. However, I continue to attend life drawing classes and short courses and feel I am still very much at the beginning of this journey. I am keen not just to improve my technique but also believe it’s time for me to explore interpretations of portraiture beyond simply capturing an accurate likeness. To this end I am hoping to work on some non-commissioned studies where I can really get to know the sitter and create work that I believe truly reflects their personality and life.'
