I've been drawing & painting from a very young age in a great variety of subjects & mediums mainly as a hobby although selling just enough pictures to buy materials to keep my hobby going. For the last couple of years I've concentrated on using my Karisma pencils with Prismacolor as a second choice now Karisma are no longer made.
My favourite subject has always been animals & birds & have recently been trying landscapes with pencils. I suppose my style would be classed as realism but my aim is to use coloured pencil to look like paintings & not photos. I like to use bright colours where-ever I can & use different coloured card which also adds different colours to the pencils. I can't think of a particular reason for my art. I just love drawing & painting.
