I was also featured on SKYArts Portrait Artist of the Year
and my work was selected to be kept by the sitter
Actor and writer David Haig MBE (Four weddings and a funeral).
Lastly... my double portrait of Sarah and William was longlisted for the 2020 BP Portrait Award at the National Portrait Gallery.
I am years old, and have been a professional artist since 2002.
I began selling my art and taking commissions at the age of eleven yet began working firstly as professional musician (SEE MUSIC PAGE HERE).
My painting was first accepted for the world-famous BP Portrait Award exhibition at The National Portrait Gallery in London, England, in 2004.
My paintings have won many awards and been exhibited in some of the most prestigious exhibitions in the world. In 2006 a portrait of my parents was selected as a finalist for the largest art-prize in the south-west
The portrait award was being judged by Rachel Cambell Johnson (Times art critic), Sir Peter Blake (Artist) and Bel Mooney (Author). I was selected as the winner and awarded the five thousand pound portrait commission.
In 2008 I held a solo exhibition at the Holburne Museum in Bath, which opened with live BBC coverage for the unveiling of my portrait of triple academy award-winning directors Peter Lord CBE, Nick Park CBE and David Sproxton.
My portrait commission 'Supper at Aardman' became part of our national collection. SEE HERECollections
