Greyscale pencils on tinted paper
I am inspired to create art by the world around me. Regardless of whether I am creating a picture of an animal or a person, in almost every case my picture starts with the eyes.
Trying to capture that essence of life is a welcome challenge and is what inspires me to create every day.
I began drawing in 2017 and now exhibit and sell my art at markets throughout Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds, via social media, online fine art sites and a number of local shops.
Last year I was shortlisted and exhibited in the 'Sketch for Survival' - Explorers against Extinction competition
I predominantly use pencils enjoying the detail I can achieve. I am drawn to images with strong contrasts and find greyscale pencils, graphite and charcoal most effective, I also love working against a dark background, focusing on the highlights rather than the shadows.
Please get in touch if you are interested in commissioning a picture or buying any of my art.
A selection of my prints and cards are available through this website and my Etsy store
