I was born in 1978 in Nottingham where I have lived all my life. Throughout my childhood I enjoyed all kinds of art, especially drawing and trying to create a likeness of something on paper. In my education I studied Art at 'A Level' then also an Art and Design Foundation Course, but it was several years after this, in 2005, that my passion for drawing really grew.
I began by drawing dogs and cats, then wildlife, and I discovered I loved drawing fur!! I have always loved animals, so I soon became enthusiastic about drawing them. I practiced as often as I could, learning tips and techniques from other pencil artists. My sketches gradually developed into more detailed studies, and this is how I love to work, creating a realistic appearence. I decided to take my hobby more seriously when I started taking on commissions for pet (and people) portraits. This website was created and I haven't stopped drawing since!
I draw as often as I can now, (but never as often as I'd like!) and I am adding new work to my galleries on a regular basis, so please come back soon and see whats new.
