My first Portrait Commission was for a Los Angeles Lawyer who stayed with us at Westville B&B, en-route to a Safari at the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Park. Capturing the essence of a couple’s love, a joyous or poignant moment between a Grandfather and his Grandson, a portrait of a loved one no longer with us, the innocence of youth, … portraits help us to connect with others. That look on their face when they see their commission for the first time, is a real rush!

I am commissioned to brighten up home offices, holiday homes, and my paintings are popular as milestone gifts for 30ths, 40ths, 50ths, wedding anniversary gifts, memorial portraits, and so much more. Knowing that each of these paintings has been especially commissioned as a well thought out gift for a loved one, makes them very special.

Now based in Cork, Ireland, I cater for cleints both in the EU and the UK, in SA, and internationally.
