“Amazing portraits… love, love them… showing them to everyone who stands still long enough.” E Jones, Midlands
Living with my family in our busy house in Staffordshire and driven by a passion for bold, visually striking imagery I specialise in creating unique, finely detailed and hyper-real canine portrait art.
Influenced by photographers and artists such as Platon, Martin Schoeller and Drew Struzan I’ve always been fascinated by the fine details in portrait images as these subtleties can often reveal so much about the subject, who they are and the life that they’ve lead. As such I seek to portray each of my subjects honestly, with larger than life, highly detailed images that give the viewer a sense of affinity and closeness to them.
Largely self taught and working from my studio in South Staffordshire I began my career undertaking pet portrait commissions for private clients. I want my art to truly convey an impression of what it’s really like to meet each of my canine subjects, and I feel extremely lucky to be able to work with these amazing, surprising animals, the experience of which is always tremendous fun and hugely rewarding.
In every case my passion is to craft unique art pieces that truly celebrate my subjects’ natural individuality whilst affording the viewer the opportunity to almost feel the texture of the subject’s coat on their fingertips as they look at my work on their wall.
