Giggles

If this year had gone to plan I wanted to develop my portraits more and play with mixing pastels and pencils to get the effect that I wanted.  I have not had the time that I wanted but have still been lucky enough to get to draw a few portraits.  The latest one to go to its new owner is this one.   I called it Giggles as it was a prize in a competition ov[...]

I am preparing to relaunch my website with the features that you have requested so you can order prints and cards and see what original drawings are available.  Life has taken me away from my artwork too much this year and I am determined to make up for lost time in what is left of this year.  I had forgotten how frustrating all of this was, computers are trained to[...]

Happy New Year, Happy New Blog

I have not been here for a very long time, I don't know if anyone is still looking but I have been told you miss the posts so I am here to put that right. Last year got too busy with commissions so that I felt I lost control a bit and didn't have the freedom I so love about art.  That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the drawings that I did - they brought me a great de[...]
