Soul Portrait Artist & Mindfulness Teacher
Soul Portrait Studio
Neil’s early work focused on travel documentation in locations such as North America, Kiribati, Fiji, St. Vincent and Zanzibar. Later, as his interest in spirituality meditation and presence evolved, Neil’s focus turned to capturing meditative landscapes and cloudscapes in the UK, Switzerland, Austria and Canada. His ‘Dynamics of Presence‚ project continues to this day as a visual exploration of the reciprocity between mindfulness and environment.
From 2008–10 Neil collaborated with the artist Stephen Morallee in a variety of mediums and forms including performance, movement work, light-drawing and portrait photography.
Neil’s Soul Portrait Process evolved in 2011 out of this collaboration and continues to grow through his own experimentation and exploration.
In 2015 Neil won representation in the USA with PHOTO Gallery Oakland following a commission by Google and the Wisdom 2.0 Conference, with exhibitions of ‘Souls of Wisdom’ in Dublin, Ireland, San Francisco and Oakland.
In 2017 Neil began to teach on creativity and mindfulness at The Esalen Institute of California.
Beyond his art, Neil is an Author, Life Coach, Mindfulness Teacher, Huffington Post Blogger and Founder of The Conscious Professional, a consultancy offering mindful education to corporate clients.
