I like doing figurative work with a realistic style. There must always be some challenge in producing each leather artwork, in this case adapting my painting technique was the aim. The painting is framed and ready to wall-hang, the artwork is not behind glass - the extremely robust and tactile nature of the paint and techniques used means the painting can be touched.
Created for and exhibited in the USA in 2013 and painted as a low key portrait of a female 'tempress' in my unique realistic art on leather style.

I create these artworks to provide additional features that other art does not. By using high quality upholstery leather and the best quality leather paint available on the market, married with my style of painting provides an experience that only sculpture can match - leather is warm to touch.
