I specialise in fine art, realistic animal portraits, both domestic and wild. To me the eyes are the most important of any piece. And I usually begin with the eyes and won't progress until I have captured the right look. I love animals and enjoy capturing their personalities in my artwork. Working with photographs as references, I like to zoom in to see the smallest of details. My work is predominantly realism in style, with an emphasis on capturing the essence of the animal I am painting.
