Commission 

2020

Untitled

The brief I was set was to create a mountain-scape for a client who enjoyed mountaineering. The client asked that I incorporate her favourite colour, coral pink into the piece. This was my first stab at a landscape piece and there is something to be said about painting a landscape when you are confined to you home during lockdown. I like to think of this piece as that window with the best view.

2012     

Untitled

Commissioned to paint a portrait of nephews for a client to gift to his sister. I completed a painting of her two sons playing in a forest with the sun setting in the background streaming through the trees.
