As I add new pages to the site, they will be listed below, so that on your next visit you won't miss them.
From time to time, I will add special messages on this page, for example any awards I win, exhibitions where you can see my work, and general ramblings about life as a pencil portrait artist.

I'm happy to announce that my artwork was accepted into Ann Kullberg's book, Colour Pencil Treasures volume 7 at the end of July. There were 900 entries from around the world and only 113 were accepted.
What an honor to be selected and have my art up there with artists and authors I have looked up to as I progressed through my art career.
Those selected are not allowed to mention the drawing that was chosen at this point, but as soon as the book is in publication I will share all!
Here are covers from some of the previous editions of CP Treasures.
I was delighted to be invited to be the featured artist for the July 2020 issue of CP Magic magazine. I also created a tutorial of a lovely Lapwing for the same issue.
