I am very fond of pencils in all forms, love pastels and enjoy acrylics and watercolours. I am a self taught artist, I have always been drawn to create portraiture. My style is realistic, sometimes painterly, my illustrations are creative and unique.
My artistic journey has led me on several paths throughout my life including working in the art department of a magazine, commissioned illustrator, commissioned portrait artist and professional tattooer.
I love playing with colours, putting a vision to paper/canvas which ultimately changes as I create and comes together as a piece of art I've poured myself into. That is what art really is, a piece of yourself entwined into something magical I believe.
