Bio
I am a self-taught part time coloured pencil artist. I started drawing graphite portraits in 2015 and have since experimented with different mediums like acrylic, watercolours and pastels. I was introduced to professional coloured pencil art in 2017. I have attended workshops and done online tutorials conducted by master coloured pencil artists like Ann Kullberg, Cynthia Knox and Karen Hull. I accept commissioned portrait works.
Most of my works tend towards photorealism and I like to work on different genres of art like landscapes, portraits and still life. I feel that there is beauty everywhere, even in the smallest of things. Through my artworks, I try to capture that beauty or the moment in time for all to see and feel.
