"Ellie's Portrait was painted from direct observation over the course of a week under natural light conditions. Ellie has the most wonderful and playful hair and there is a sense about her that she is from another era. This helps to create some welcome confusion about the setting of the painting, some thinking it belongs in the 1920s rather than a century later. I enjoy this ambiguity and would rather not tie my paintings to a specific point in time through depicting obvious fashion trends and would rather leave it up for debate."
