Two brothers playing on a beach in Ibiza while their mother reads her book. Capturing the personality, interpersonal relationship and energy of the two boys was important. I sought to do that by putting them in context, capturing the intensity of their play through different frames of action and also by putting them on a circular canvas, which reflects the world, but the one that mattered to them in the moment, i.e. one that is contracted down to their immediate environment.

Highly Commended in 2019 TALP Open Art Competition organised by The Artist and Leisure Painter Magazine in the ‘Artist Category’.

The portrait was a commission of a brother and sister. The composition seeks to bring out that they are the best of friends, content in each other’s company, while living their own separate lives. Both are very individual with divergent interests, with are lost in their interests but engaged in the world. The painting employs a studied natural technique within an overall loose style.

5 years old. The colour combinations were chosen to bring out Hattie’s cheeky personality.  A pot of sweets helped bribe her to sit still for this commission!

Tiggy
Tiggy

7 years old.  The portrait was a commission. She is still at the start of her life but beginning to look forward to the future. I wanted to capture that essence, and the lighting, by the window of their period home. And also to bring out the promise of being 7 years old, with most of life still ahead, that we can all remember.

Masks are unnerving and affect us as the viewer. Hidden faces. Uncanny. Unsettling. Innocence brought into question.

We all wear masks. Your move.  The masks we choose.  Check.  The mask we don't.  The masks we can't escape.  The human face is nothing more nor less than a mask.  Checkmate.  Sometimes we need to wear a mask to reveal the truth. To us. About us. To others. About them.
