I studied Art at Art College, but I demonstrate a genuine talent for pencil portrait drawings and most of the time, I am self-taught. My creative skill developed in the chosen medium of graphite and ivory black drawing and studio pencils.

The art of pencil portrait drawing is something I value and attempt to capture my subject’s likeness and mood. I draw with ivory black studio pencils to achieve realistic pencil portraits from your photos.

I am based in Birmingham, England, UK and have always been interested in pencil portraits. As a child, I preferred drawing faces more than any other subject matter. I am proud to be able to give joy to someone from my pencil portraits. My aim is to capture the likeness and even the mood of the subjects.
