Born and raised near Maidstone in Kent, I specialise in coloured pencil portraits of Wildlife, Pets and People. Cats and Dogs are my most requested portraits and I do love a challenge. I am admired for my attention to detail and accuracy. I create my artwork using Graphite, Coloured Pencils and Watercolour.
I decided to give myself a challenge and draw some wildlife portraits in coloured pencil as a fund raising project, in collaboration with British photographers and the Kent Wildlife Trust. This has been an amazing journey and great fun to share with others.
I have 4 main passions in life Art, Nature, Science and my family. I have always been a creative person and it has definitely rubbed off on my 7 year old daughter. We have great fun drawing and painting together, even if she can draw 50 pictures to my 1. She's the best artist buddy anyone could ask for.
I studied art at KIAD in Rochester back in 1999 but only started drawing pet portraits in 2005. After a lot of practice, I branched out to people portraits in 2009 and continued to refine my drawing skills. Up until 2017 I mostly drew as a hobby but I am now ready to broaden my horizon and turn this small hobby into an occupation that I love.
