Ever since I was young, I have always spent my free time drawing and painting. I would find myself inspired by the beauty of faces and found myself drawn to painting them. Without any lessons, I have painted faces all my life, for my pleasure and that of friends and family.
Professionally I was an antique dealer in Paris and Madrid for many years, assisting professional restorers. I was fascinated by the work of old masters, and am still an expert in this field. But every style and period has its beauty, and it makes my day when I come across
a work of art that touches me.
Now I live in London next to my family, and feel lucky to have plenty of time to paint. I love it.
Do you want to see some of my portraits? Scroll down and see.
The portrait process begins with a quick visit, where I will take a few sketches, and a photo.
In either my home, or yours!
You don't have to stay still for a long time; have a cup of tea, and relax.
We can also discuss framing, to make for a beautiful piece.
A loving gift and lifelong memory!
My paintings below are oil on canvas, the traditional way!
