I have always drawn faces, a fascination which evolved into an interest in make-up artistry.
I have been painting for the last 16 years, as well as working as a make up artist/stylist in the Television Commercial World.
I began in my home studio by painting grand scale portraits of women inspired by the work of the renowned Italian photographer, Paolo Roversi.
A phone call to his “Studio Luca” in Paris, requesting the right to copy his pictures brought the affirmative yes, “no one has ever asked me that before”.
During my artistic career I have explored a range of subject themes as pictured below.

My love of detail, colour, and passion for creating beauty gives me a great sense of achievement.
The art of the old masters and Pre-Raphaelites has always captivated me.
I practiced technique by replicating their masterpieces.
