I have been a professional portrait artist for the last 10 or 11 years but have been painting for
a lot longer . I started out by painting nothing but seascapes and still do the odd one from time to
time , I then moved onto landscapes and wildlife paintings before I finally decided to concentrate
I get commissioned to paint a lot of pets , mainly dogs - but I also get to paint a fair amount of
portraits of people. And when I am not painting commissions I normally spend my time painting
copies of famous works of art which I find helps me to refine my own painting technique.
When I am not painting I spend my time...
Actually if I am to be completely honest with you I spend all my time painting. I thought about
making some stuff up to make me sound more interesting than I really am - scuba diving,
environmental activism etc - and I briefly considered saying I was a published poet and an author
of children's literature, but this would be complete rubbish and I would be a complete and utter liar
- that said if I am to tell you something about myself then I should probably let you know I once
starred in a Hollywood movie alongside Robert Deniro, I have journed to both poles, climbed
Everest and was 1992 Olympic Gold Medalist Fencing Champion.
My autobiography "Exploits Of A Legendary Swordsman" which deals with my Hollywood years
as well as my brief stint as the lead singer of the Rolling Stones (1994 - 96) can be bought at any
If you would like to commission me to paint a portrait of yourself, a friend or your pet then
just drop me an email and I will try to get back to as soon as I can.
