I live in the countryside near Newbury and have always had a love of horses and
animals, leading to them being the main subject of my work. I paint and draw in my
spare time as I work full time in an office based equestrian company. I am also currently
studying for both work related and equine related exams.
I am a self taught artist and although I studied art at sixth form, it has only
been since I have left school that I have developed my skills in portraiture I take
a lot of time over my work and an A4 pencil portrait will usually take me a minimum
of 15 hours as I like to ensure I am capturing the subject to the best of my ability.
When working for commission I prefer to meet the subject and take my own photographs,
as I then get a good feel for the character and also the owner. However, if a very
high quality image can be supplied (ideally in digital format) and it is a good composition,
I would be happy to use it.
I currently charge £85 for a single A4 pencil portrait, excluding p&p.
