I got my Fine Art degree in DJCAD, University of Dundee this year. I am a painter with deep interest in the human condition as expressed through the human form.
The portrait of Chiara was one of the paintings in my degree show. I painted the model from life directly so that I could catch the mood leaking through the eyes and the face when communicating with her. The bright yellow shirt, the hat and the colour in the little finger are showing her bright personality even when facing difficulties in life.
