Making portraits affords me the pleasure of engagement with the individual; drawn with powdered graphite on mylar and coloured with acrylic or pastel, the images reveal some unique aspect of my client. The women in these drawings range from 24 to 70, but remain ageless, the particularity of their features subsumed to their essential femininity.


Sittings for commissions usually take place in my studio and take less than two hours, during which time we discuss the intent of the portrait, and experiment with positions.
