I have many years of experience of portrait painting and drawing
and have completed many successful commissions for clients in the UK
I have been painting and drawing from an early age, and I joined the local art club as a junior member.
and later attended Glasgow School of Art portraiture classes.
trained as signwriter/artist in Glasgow
taught adult evening art classes in my early 20s locally
also later taught art and computer publishing in an adult training centre Cumbernauld
managed art dept. in a small sculpture studio in Glasgow
with various other art related appointments over the years.
Now many years on I now work from my home studio and specialise in creating genuine artist portraits of people and pets for clients, using photos as a reference.
You can commission realistic original portrait oil paintings on canvas and pencil drawings from your photos
direct from the artist
and you can find many sample artworks created by hand using traditional methods and materials on my gallery pages
