My sixteen year old self would be very proud, flicking through art books stuffed with work from Euan Uglow, Lucien Freud and Jenny Saville, he dreamed of being a portrait artist. Well here it is, it took a lot longer than he originally thought!
Portraits are something I really fell for when studying art, there’s an intangible power and intimacy to them. Even without meeting many of my subjects a relationship is inevitably built when you are staring at their image for hour on end. You get to know the ins and outs of their face, what makes them, them, it’s magical to see their essence appear from a blank canvas.
I work mainly in oils or pencil for my portraits, there’s something very personal about both mediums.
