A unique and individual hand drawn portrait can not only capture an incredible likeness of the subject, but also bring out a personality and warmth other mediums struggle to obtain. This is because when when people look at a traditionally created piece of art they also see the skill, dedication and time required to create that image.

Pet Portraits

Whether you are looking for a unique way to hang an image of your pet on a wall, or wanting to remember a long lost pet, these portraits can become a cherished possession for your home and family.

People Portraits

My people portraits can be of people of any age, either individual portraits, or people groups. They make an ideal and unique present for a family member or friend.

Not only are the portraits suited to all ages of family members, they can also commemorate a persons achievement, such as a hall of fame for a sports person or company directors.

Nature & Wild Animals

My portraits are produced using quality graphite pencils on heavy weight paper.

A great deal of work and effort goes into each portrait, yet they are available at costs comparable to and often less than a professionally taken photograph.

If you are interested in my work, or would like to commission a portrait, please feel free to contact me.
