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 next exhibition is...
Lamplight and Flowers
5th to 21st October 2016
Panter and Hall Gallery, London
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. In 2010 my solo exhibition, "Antarctica to China" was held 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 £2000 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.
