Welcome to my website
I am a member of the New English Art Club and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and was Vice President of The RP from 2002 - 2008.
My most recent exhibition was called "Reflected Light" and was held at the
Panter and Hall Gallery, London
from 11th to 27th September 2013.
I have been commissioned to paint a wide range of people, most notably, in 1981, H.R.H. The Princess of Wales in her wedding dress and in 1997, H.M.The Queen, to celebrate the Royal Automobile Club's Centenary. Although, as you can see from this site, most of my portraits are of less well known people. My Interiors are mostly sold at exhibitions - either with the New English Art Club or through other galleries and dealers. My last solo exhibition, "Antartica to China" was in November 2010 at Ackermann Modern. My new London gallery is Panter and Hall where I held my most recent solo exhibition "Reflected Light".
My prices for commissioned portraits range from £3500 and for interiors from £1000 depending on size. I would need approximately three sittings and I enjoy travelling to paint people in their own homes.
I am married to Martin Bates and I divide my time between London and Scotland.
