My love of drawing began with portraits and my attention to detail has allowed me to hone my skills to the level I am at today. I work primarily in colour pencils; it’s their precise nature and ability to create such a vast range of textures that have always drawn me to them. Having worked freelance for 9 years, I have been able to develop and refine my own identifiable visual language and style outside of my artistic education. Studying hyper-realism and photo-realistic artists is what has pushed my work forward making it commercial and suitable for freelance.
Although my main passion lies with portraiture, my work always leads back to a botanical theme, which lends itself to many different applications of illustration, the most recent for me being surface pattern design.
