David Whitfield


David lives in Cheshire, England with Jo and their two young children, Oscar and Isis.

David and Jo have travelled and worked around the world and love to spend time travelling together as a family now.

David's paintings are primarily close up head and shoulder portraits of people and animals. His preferred media is oil on canvas; he is currently exploring and developing his work using woodcuts.

He produces paintings based on his observations of a good quality photograph and will discuss requirements and make recommendations regarding background and size of canvas etc.

David is happy to communicate regularly with clients so that they are involved as fully as possible in the production of the artwork that they have commissioned.

David produces striking images in which the eyes are often the most powerful element. Anyone who knows the subject finds himself or herself connecting with the painting as they would with the subject.
