" I have been working as a commercial artist and illustrator for over forty years, originally in publishing and advertising, and then moving on to large scale paintings and murals for private clients and companies. The copying of fine art began some years ago when a client requested a copy of Cezanne’s “Bathers”. More commissions followed until there became a steady demand. I have made copies of paintings from all periods, from Caravaggio through the Impressionists to modern works by the likes of Francis Bacon and Howard Hodgkin. I am currently working on a Modigliani copy to coincide with the exhibition of his work at Tate Modern in London." Quote Peter Osborne.
