Selected by the Holburne Portrait Prize, Bath, October 2008, and chosen as the People's Choice.

"When I paint a portrait I always hope the viewer will feel the presence of the sitter. In this painting of my
son, I am trying to express something of that transitional moment when a boy becomes a man. I'm hoping the viewer will feel not just 'My Boy' but an awareness of what that enigmatic moment means for all boys and all mothers."
