BOOK A COMMISSION
Here is a selection of my original work and commissioned work, all drawn with coloured pencils. I bring my love for animals and art together by creating the highest quality realistic coloured pencil drawings of wildlife, capturing the characters and beauty of each animal.
In my original wildlife portraiture, I like to work from carefully selected photographs, which often capture a close-up, personal moment of the subject in a strong light. This enables me to achieve an exceptional amount of detail in each of my pieces, drawing attention to the beauty and expression of each animal depicted, often portraying an intimate emotional encounter. The animal is poised and there is often a stillness, inviting the viewer in.
I choose to create my authentic portraits in coloured pencils, as they allow for accuracy and depth through an incredible control of detail. I enjoy the timely process of building up layers, to recreate fur textures, through every delicately placed pencil stroke. Bringing the subject to life on the paper, through intricate professional techniques and patience, is why my artwork is so well respected, due to the precision and the time I put into each and every hand drawn original piece.
I consider my work to be a balance between photo realism and a classic delicate drawing style. It’s important to me that my work holds an element of photo realism, but can still be recognised as a coloured pencil drawing.
