Despite a lifetime of art and drawing, I am a relative late comer to the world of coloured pencil. Drawing with graphite has always been my medium of choice and although I have explored other mediums; watercolour, pastels and acyrlics, I have never been able to recreate the feel and expression I found with graphite - that is until I chanced across some amazing art in coloured pencil on Facebook of all places and decided to have a go. I've have fallen in love with this medium and am amazed by its versatility.
My art consists mainly of animal subjects and I work to commission offering portraits of domestic animals - horses, dogs, cats etc. For my own artwork my first love is equine art but I'm also developing my skills as a wildlife artist with both domestic and exotic animals.
