Welcome to my site. I'm an artist and portrait painter based in west London, UK. I use one of the most ancient painting mediums, egg tempera, and have developed my own technique for working with it. As well as portraits I paint abstracts and other works inspired by electronic music and digital media. In this interaction between ancient and modern there is a limitless playground of creative potential. This short video by the film maker Sarah Lewis explains it in a little more depth:
