My passion is animal portraiture with the goal of capturing the animals’ personalities and expressions in art form. I work primarily in coloured pencils and also run a YouTube channel where you can find tutorials, art tips and art product reviews. My favourite tools are Faber Castell Polychromos, Caran d’Ache Luminance and Caran d'Ache Pablo coloured pencils.
