My love for oil painting began at rather a young age when I would sit and observe my mother painting and I quickly developed a liking for the familiar smell of linseed oil and the buttery consistency of the paints.

In later years, while studying History of Art with The University of Oxford I gathered inspiration from a variety of different sources but I developed a particular fondness for the Classical Tradition and the techniques of The Old Masters. Consequently, it seemed quite natural that I would incorporate many of their techniques into my own practice.
