Painting portraits

Lucian, 2002

Carmen, 2006

Julia, 2008

Hey Audrey!

I love people, I love looking at them, studying their faces, their behaviour and their quirks. I admire good portrait painters, like Lucian Freud. Marlene Dumas is my favourite artist of all time. I love her ideas, her mark making and her colouring. Sometimes I enjoy painting portraits myself of people that have come to mean a lot to me.
