Now taking commissions in Vancouver BC, and surrounding areas (always willing to travel!)
Over the last five years I have enjoyed drawing children’s portraits, everywhere from the Argentine Pampas to the heart of Europe in Germany and of course all over the UK. Capturing their spirit in a timeless, classical pencil drawing is such a rewarding job for me, and a lovely way to record that moment as they change so quickly.
Here is one of my latest which I finished last month, from a beautiful family who have commissioned me to draw their four children three times over the last four years. It has been such a joy to watch them grow up and an honour to have been asked to return to draw them so many times.
Now in Vancouver…
It’s been an exciting few months for me setting up in Vancouver. A change of environment, endless inspiration, incredible landscapes and boundless wilderness. Where to start?!
I have been plein air painting making a series of small oils on board. You can’t get too precious and you need to work fast, I love this way of painting. I am also lucky to have a small studio space so some large scale drawings are also in progress. Whispering trees and giant seeds.
It’s a slow process but what a way to explore and enjoy a new country. The results will eventually make it to a gallery in London, dates still to be finalised, watch this space.
