I am largely self taught, working in a variety of media including watercolour, acrylics, pastels, mixed media, acrylic inks and drawing media such as graphite and carbon pencils, coloured pencils and charcoal.
I do tend jump around in subject matter, partly because I love the variety and different challenges this offers, but also to offer the best to my students, who often want to work on subjects they have chosen, that I need to be able to guide them through.
I have recently given more attention to my favourite subjects though; sketching and painting dogs. I have been booking stalls at fetes and fayres, where people can bring their dogs to me to be photographed on my ipad; they choose their favourite photo and can commission me to do a portrait in their chosen medium of their canine companion. I then complete the commission at home and post the finished sketch to them.
If you'd like to commission a sketch or painting of your pet (even if they're not dogs! I love all animals), then please contact me
with your details. I have advice for taking and supplying the best photos for me to work from here
