Richard Lovesey

I was born and raised in Lincolnshire's inspirational rural landscape where I still live today with my wife Jo, and our three children. My interest in art began when I attempted to capture Lincolnshire's rich aviation heritage in a series of graphite aircraft drawings. Having never drawn seriously before, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I possessed a talent for it. This, coupled with positive encouragement from family and friends, inspired me to use my ability to provide people with a unique product at an affordable price.

During 1999, I progressed away from graphite and began to experiment with colour, and have never looked back. With no formal training in art, I have mastered my own unique approach and technique through practical experience, using only the finest quality colour pencils from Derwent, Faber-Castell and Caran d'Ache. More recently, I have benefitted from the invaluable support from fellow pencil artists through the UKCPS. 

The majority of my commissioned work takes the form of portraits. Children and pets are by far the most popular requests, although I like to consider almost any subject. I work soley from photographs because this approach allows me to take time over a picture, ensuring that I can achieve the best results. Please visit my website where you can purchase Greetings Cards, Prints, Key Rings and other exclusive products featuring my work.
