Welcome

 

I am a full-time coloured pencil artist living and working in UK.  Creating highly detailed and carefully drawn coloured pencil portraits of both wild animals and domestic pets and horses. I have sold internationally to clients in Europe, America, Australia and New Zealand.

Drawing this amount of detail is a time consuming process and many days of work go into each portrait. Working with only the highest quality professional lightfast coloured pencils and archival papers, I aim to bring out the character and beauty of each subject. 

 

I also create pet portraits from good quality (wherever possible) digital photographs, although if asked to draw a memorial portrait of a beloved pet, print copies are usually acceptable, but some detail may be lost due to poorer quality reproductions. A portrait can only be as good as the reference material but I strive to depict the beloved pet as closely as I possibly can given the information at my disposal.

 

My portrait of the Snow Leopard, entitled 'Snow Queen' has been published in Colored Pencil Magazine and is available as a Limited Edition print.  A run of only 25 was commissioned and each print is hand signed by me and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and a care sheet. Please contact me for details. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My portrait of 'Ava' has also been included in a collection in Colored Pencil Magazine.  This was a a commissioned piece and not available for sale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

'Love is in the Hare' has just been published in the October 2022 issue of Ann Kulberg's Color magazine. Prints are available Please contact me for details.

Below is just a small sample of my work. Please browse through the different galleries for further examples.  Many items can be ordered as prints, some are Limited Editions, or greetings cards and more will be added as they are completed. 

But if you are looking for a particular animal which you cannot see here, please get in touch and we can discuss your requirements. However, I have a severe case of Arachnophobia, so as long as you are not wanting a portrait of any sort of spider, I'll do my best for you. 

I look forward to hearing from you.
