Heike Allerton-Davies

Heike Allerton-Davies’s work is concerned with creating portraits that reflect a degree of discomfort, and a reality that is blatant but carries many subtle undertones. The people she paints are individuals captured in their realities and her aim is to portray an honesty about them that cannot be created or fabricated.
