I am a fine art portrait artist living in Cheshire, England. I initially pursued my love of drawing in my spare time and being a huge cricket fan I was naturally drawn to my favourite sport as well as my love of portraits. I love attempting to capture the twisted body movement of cricketers, particularly the unnatural and unusual positions they get themselves in. I sold my first professional drawing in May 2014, since then the demand for my cricket and sports drawings have increased dramatically, becoming collectables. I am now able to work full time as a professional artist working from my home studio. In order to improve my 'drawing from life' I collect small botanical pieces to work from. My working process is to work on these for at least an hour each morning to improve my drawing skills and maintain my hand / eye co-ordination. I particularly enjoy pieces that have intricate fine details or complicated twisted shapes. Recently I have begun photographing my own subjects and have begun to draw and paint birds and wildlife, again focusing on the fine intricate details. I draw freehand, working in charcoal, graphite and pastel all of which work well to capture movement and life. I create an impressionistic likeness using a painterly style, building up the shade with charcoal or pastel as if painting. "I have a humble respect for fine art portraits and all their properties. I work diligently and carefully with a high regard and affection for all my subjects" I am a member of the Chester Grosvenor Art Society I am a member of Altrincham Art Society
