Both my grandparents were artists and from an early age I always drew pictures.
I started my own art business in 1984 having already completed training as an animal nurse, as a result of which my first commissions were animals in pastel.
Since then I have tried most mediums, but about 5 years ago rediscovered coloured pencils... only of course they weren't ordinary coloured pencils. I found the soft buttery artists quality pencils have allowed me to take my technique from pastels- that of overlaying colour upon colour - into coloured pencils. I often use pastel papers and enjoy wildlife themes particularly.
