Bio
I am a self-taught colour pencil artist living in the heart of the Brecon Becons countryside in Wales. I made the leap in 2016 from working on my engineering PhD to becoming a full-time artist and have never looked back. I built up my pet portrait business from nothing and I love every moment of it. I have been a professional fine art artist for a few years now, providing unique and highly detailed hand drawings for people all over the world including the UK, Europe, USA, Canada, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. I specialize in a realistic style of human and animal portraits, using a mixture of Faber Castell Polychromos and Caran D’ache Luminance colour pencils on high-quality Super Smooth Bristol Board paper, drawn from photographs. I make my living from commission work but I also like to draw in my spear time, creating various artworks to one day have in a gallery. I really love nature and hope to create more landscape work.
