That's me (in the back!) quite a long time ago on my travels in India. I now lead a more conventional life with 2 children and a dog called Poppy but still hold dear my creative spirit and love to express this through my artwork.
I've always loved faces and found an interest in drawing them from a young age. As a child I used to copy all sorts of animal pictures from various sources and also worked from pictures of my various idols printed on the back of magazines. Although there are quite a few artists in the family, I believe my portrait ability may have been passed down from my Irish Grandfather who was often seen in his village with sketch pad drawing passers by.
Through my travels, I later developed an interest in African portraiture and spent time in both Kenya and Namibia sketching villagers and tribes people.
Since settling down in Shrewsbury I began to really focus on people and pet commission work and am also developing a new passion for drawing wildlife and local scenes.
The only thing that gives me more pleasure than drawing a protrait, is the joy it brings. Contact me if you would like to commission a portrait.
