My qualifications, career and interests have always been mainly science based so in my late sixties I am a late starter to any kind of serious drawing. During the last couple of years I have experimented with acrylics and watercolours but, like others, I prefer the control and precision of coloured pencils.

I concentrate mainly on portraits, however, generally, I do not strive to achieve photorealism but rather to achieve a style with each drawing which hopefully shows the original in a different perspective while still maintaining accuracy of detail.

I am self taught and recognise a need for expert advice to improve my techniques.
