I work as a portrait artist completing a small number of portraits annually to commission. I work with acrylic paint, painting on cotton or linen canvas. The scale of my work is usually small, approximately 30cm x 30cm and is influenced by my painting technique, which is very considered, as I build layer upon layer of paint to give a rich, glazed appearance to my work.

A recent work 'Portrait of Louise' is currently on exhibition at the Royal Ulster Academy's 138th Annual Exhibition and has been awarded the prize for portraiture, sponsored by Ross’s Fine Art Auctioneers. The exhibition runs from the 18th October 2019 to the 5th January 2020 at the Ulster Museum, Botanic Garden’s, Belfast.

I hope you enjoy my site and if you have any questions or comments or if you would like to commission a portrait, please email.

Many thanks for your interest,

Adele Chapman
