About Dave

After spending many years as a freelance illustrator in London I now prefer to paint subjects that excite me rather than working to the constraints of commercial commissions.

I work out of a small studio in Portslade, painting with Acrylic, Oil, or a mix of both on canvas. I also like to paint on recycled wooden pallets because they take on a new life and I like the texture it gives me.

Portraits are my thing and in particular musicians and film stars for the simple reason that they usually look interesting and I secretly would like to be some of them!

I hope you enjoy my gallery of work and please do get in touch if you have any questions.
