I have loved art since I was little, and my biggest inspiration is the beautiful New Forest and all the wildlife it is home to. I also love colour and pattern, and try to use this in different ways throughout my work. My favourite medium is coloured pencil, as it gives me the most control to create realistic portraits of animals, however, I want my wildlife drawings to be more than just an animal portrait, hence my use of patterns.
I have also carried out commissioned works, it’s an absolute pleasure and a privilege to draw people’s beloved pets; dogs, cats, horses; or even just their favourite animal.
