Painting portraits are one of the most challenging subject matter to paint but also one of the most satisfying!

I try to bring expression into my portraits and to capture the personality of the person I am painting. I have often been asked to paint portraits of children’s favourite cuddly toys. In this gallery my girls’ dearly loved ‘Badger’ and ‘Snuggles’ feature, it was wonderful seeing my daughters’ faces when I gave them as a Christmas present.
