I am a self-taught artist based in Fleet, Hampshire and have always had a passion for drawing. For as long as I can remember I have been drawing pencil portraits for family and friends which have been well received with many encouraging and complimentary comments. 

After careful consideration I made the decision to leave conventional full time employment last year in order to enhance my creative side and make it work for me. 

My drawings are very detailed studies from photographs which take many hours to achieve.  I work mainly with graphite pencil but occasionally with colour and pastel pencils.  As you will see from the examples in my gallery, I specialise in animal portraiture but am also building a portfolio of human subjects.

I hope you will enjoy looking at my drawings as much as I enjoy creating them.  If you would like to commission a portrait of your pet or another family member please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your requirements.
