Heraldic Artist and Calligrapher, painting heraldic arms in colour or as requested.
I accept commissions for heraldry or calligraphy works and am happy to discuss projects beforehand, including for the enquiries for handpainted illuminated initial letters on watercolour paper, ordered for custom wedding or birthday gifts.
I also have a selection of 6 x 6"printed heraldic animal cards and 6 x 4" calligraphy message cards.
I am happy to discuss any enquiries for possible commissions from anyone interested in any aspect of my work.
I usually work in oils, mostly using sketches done on the spot. I am currently interested in 'edgelands', ex-industrial sites which are now spaces for wildlife. I studied at City Lit, Fine Art course 2013-14.
I love using saturated colours or simple black and white: colour conveys emotions, reactions, tensions, moments in time that are experienced but not seen. Using line for life drawing lets me practice optimum co-ordination between eye and hand, free from thought expressed in words, allowing for a universal language.
I supply unique paintings, in oil, commissioned from photographs - animals, people, views, painted in a setting of your choice or left to me to decide, as appropriate. These are paintings you will cherish, frame and display and that no-one else will have - your own unique painting of your loved family member, friend, pet or faviour scene - painted to your own specifications.
