I’ve been interested in art since my childhood. I did commissioned works for a number of years, but I hadn’t established my own artwork at that stage. It was my son, Alexander Shaw, who is a painter himself, who encouraged me to pursue more personal work. So around four years ago I started drawing self-portraits using a mirror because it was private and allowed me to experiment. Then I started producing portraits of other people. [...] What attracts me to portraits is getting into the model’s mind. I try to find out every person’s truth, whether it’s in a look or a tiny gesture.
