Passionate about art! …devoted to the creative muse.

My name is David Porter (Dave), I’m a UK artist (based in Nottinghamshire) focusing on creating original unique soulful custom artwork, my work has been accepted in several countries worldwide. Take a look at my back story to know more.

I create original paintings and drawings,  preferring not to specialize in just one genre… alI life fascinate me.

What is unique about my Art?

If you think of a Caricature Artist, they bring out the funniest expressions of a person… well, what I focus on is to express the soul and energy of the subject. Resulting in not just a likeness but a sense that they are actually there.

I only observe with an open heart and a quiet mind and let the creative muse take over.
