I am an artist specialising in large scale drawings in pastel,charcoal and conte'.
The human being is at the core of my work. The face, the hands,the incredible beauty of the human body. The expression, the demeanour, and what hides behind that.
I have always been fascinated by costume and adornment and how it is used to denote or deny a presence.

I have had work selected for the 2014 and 2013 Royal Society of Portrait Painters Open exhibitions and for the Pastel Society 2013 and 2015 Open Exhibitions
"Red Monocle" won the Conte' a Paris Award at the 2013 Pastel Society Open Exhibition
"Nancy trotter Landry and Bobby" won the Faber Castell Award at the 2015 Pastel Society Open Exhibition
