I am a Devon in England, based Illustrator & I work predominately in black & line using pen & ink. I have a life long love for the natural world and this is reflected in my work.
I specialize in animals, black white line, botanical, childrens illustration, drawing, flora fauna, flowers, illustration, illustrator, natural world, nature, pen and ink, typography, wildlife.
My favourite commission so far! Took me a while this one but so pleased with the finished piece. Didn't want to let her go! Drawn in black and white line using fine liners.
Commission portrait. Gorgeous tabby cat. Drawn in black and white line using fineliner's.
Commission portrait drawn in black and white line using fine liners.
Another portrait commission! Gorgeous little man! Drawn with 0.05 fine liner on A4 medium texture cartridge paper.
Gorgeous little Rupert the West Highland Terrier. He was drawn using black fine liners on A4. Love doing the animal portraits... I love it when their little eyes suddenly peep out the paper! Available as an A4 print.
I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to paint a design on a rather large gorilla! I am so excited to do this. It's taking an age but getting there slowly. When he's all done he will be going on show at Paignton Zoo.
Gentleman Cat was modelled on a victorian oil painting with a special family cat as the star of the show! Part of a pair for a special Christmas present.
Commission Request for a clients wife who loves Flamingos and Victoriana. What can you do? Tah Dah!!!!! This was so much fun, I feel more of these coming soon....watch this space!
'Lucky' Such a beautiful face to draw...nearly done!
My final entry for Stage 3 of the doodle addicts challenge! I have loved doing these challenges. They have not only got me drawing things I wouldn't have considered off my own back, but they have brought me out of my comfort zone too. Drawing steam is harder than I thought!!!
This is little Finley the Border Terrier. He is a recent commission. I haven't ever drawn a dog so really enjoyed doing this whilst trying to keep to my black and white line style.
'Oh how wonderful life would be, if I had my own little house in a tree!' This one was created for the Urban Explorer Challenge and I loved every minute of it! As a lover of the natural environment I had to draw on where my heart lies so a treehouse seemed a fitting response!
I came across these Sepia Fine Liners! Had so much fun experimenting with them. Looking forward to creating some more images with these.
A botanical explosion to celebrate Mother Nature in all her floral glory! Drawn in pen and ink and really therapeutic to do!
Progress? The finished Illustration!
A feast of all things flora and fauna!
Just about there with this one. Not sure if it works as I wanted it to!
Bit more on this one...still not sure if it's going to work!
Thought I would have a go at a competition! It has encouraged me to diversify within one image and think outside the box. I'll see how it goes!
