My Latest Commission is finished.


My latest commission is finished, I did a few versions, which when you are working in print is easy to do, so that the client could have a choice.

The sitter is 15 years old, caught between a boy and a man. The portrait shows a confidence with the possibility of pride and arrogance that we all get when we are teenagers and think we know it all.

He sits in his family's traditional Turkish Chair. Caught between a man and a boy but also caught between two cultures. Half Turkish half British, Half Muslin half Christian. The world in front of him.

I am really pleased with the finished work. I think it shows him strong and knowing, a new generation in a new age. Emotive, a good likeness, and a strong pose.

Sky Arts Portrait artist of the year 2019 Reject letter.

Dear Artist

Thank you for your application to Portrait Artist of the Year 2019.
We have received even more applications this year. The judges have now examined every single submission, and have been more impressed than ever with the standard of the artwork. As always, their job whittling these down to a shortlist of just 72 artists to take part in 8 heats has not been an easy one, but on this occasion we regret to inform you that your application has not been successful. 
Due to increasing popularity with the public it has been necessary this year to ticket the heats at the Wallace Collection in London and all the sessions are now fully booked. If you are not attending the heats we sincerely hope you will tune in to watch the new series when it transmits on Sky Arts in January 2019, and also be inspired to enter again next year.

Don’t forget the deadline for Landscape Artist of the Year 2018 is 11th May, so there is still time to submit your application!
We hugely appreciate the time and…

How to be feminine in an AI Universe

Artificial intelligence will come to sentient thought just as gender role models disintegrate. How will robots understand the feminine aspect when they are born into a world transgressing stereo typical male and female roles? The feminine aspect is nurturing and giving, it has Empathy, Affinity, Compassion. What will happen to these qualities? Will we live in a utopia where everyone nurtures the Male and Female aspects? Or will we live in a dystopia where the feminine is outlawed because it does not promote profit and power? 
This exhibition will explore these issues and more. This body of work does not have a venue yet. If you would be interested in showing it please get in touch.

My Redbubble shop

As an artist Redbubble is a great place to see your artworks transformed in to products, I particularly like the clothing. Seeing a painting transformed into a dress is really exciting. I might start just wearing clothes that I have designed.



My digital designs look really good as dresses.
Please have a look, if you are an artist I recommend you think about adding your own designs.
