Sydney Based Artist Specialising In Watercolour Portraiture

Artist Statement

When I create a portrait, I am aware of the almost seamless link we have with our past or future, our hopes, joys or sorrows. Portraiture by its very nature is an intimate experience. Preoccupied as we often are, perhaps from very different backgrounds, there is always a human connection. Especially with families and children I see the love of a parent for their child. It is that individual passion and character I hope to portray. I usually work on commission and often my portraits are painted from digital images or photographs. Watercolor lends itself to the softness and curves of the human form and allows me great freedom.

Watercolour As A Preferred Medium 

I may be attracted to the mellow light and shade creating seamless edges; drifting in and out of focus.
Or perhaps the eclectic mix of music, textures or colours may be the inspiration for a portrait.
Although each portrait essentially begins the same way – with discussion, planning, sketching, watercolour washes and glazes – ultimately the creation of each portrait is an individual experience.
Often for me, as an Artist, the experience is cathartic; essentially we grow from the experience.
