The people in the ‘Portrait Series’ have all made an impression on me and inspire me in one way or another.
From the great hell raisers of Richard Harris and Oliver Reed to great actors and comedians like Robert Deniro and Richard Pryor to the great minds of George Orwell and Einstein.
These days we’re all quite used to seeing cheap, mass produced ‘celebrity’ images/prints in the likes of ‘OK’ and ‘Heat’. With the labour intensive, centuries old method I have used to create my prints I hope to convey my respect and in some way the depth and spirit of the people depicted. I hope that one or two of my ‘greats’ will be yours too.”
