A South-London based painter specialising in portraiture. Although I did an Art Foundation course some years ago I have no formal art education aside from school and taught myself to paint. I am fascinated by people and try to capture the unique characters of my subjects by experimenting with perspective, colour and mixed media. My work often incorporates elements of humour, the macabre and fantasy to tell a story about the subjects and bring them to life, as well as transport the viewer into an alternate, escapist reality. Artistic influences include Frida Kahlo, the Chapman Brothers, Hieronymous Bosch, the work of Kubrick, Alberto Vargas, Dali.
