Life moves between the Studio in Shacklewell Lane, Dalston, Dance Studios in East London and the Editing Suite in Stamford Hill. The days of International Travel have gone! The Jet Set life replaced by Life in the Bus Lane.

Working on a new group of paintings, part of my Portrait of Performers, including portrait of amazing Performance Artist Missa Blue.

Work continues on a dance for film project with dancers, Performers, Musicians and Composers.

Also Curating a show of Live performance and Artists Films at an eccentric venue in Hackney.

The portrait of Pierre comes to life! #Ricardo #theCastleofOtranto #Gothic #Symbolism #Decadence #Pygmalion #DorianGray

Le Belle et la Bete, Ghostbusters 2, Frida, The Stendhal Syndrome,  Night at the Museum, Harry Potter…  – Films where paintings come to life. Any more? What about books or poems?

My  painting, Portrait of Pierre, has been used for the cover of a novel by Italian author Federico Sabatini. The portrait was then brought to life by artist Mauro F Cardinali… for a performance in Italy.

The animated portrait sings and plays guitar.

What would the portraits below do if they came to life, I wonder?


In the studio… Portrait Painting Series continues… commissions accepted
