I am an artist based in Tipperary, Ireland. I have been drawing since a very early age and have worked in many different mediums. I have had my work featured on magazine covers, album sleeves, clothing and on national TV. I also taught calligraphy for a time but my real passion is portraiture.
I specialise in pencil portraits drawn from photographs and give each commission my undivided attention. I use Wolff's carbon pencils as they give a rich, matte finish to your portrait as opposed to the shine associated with traditional graphite pencils. The paper stock I use is heavy weight with a fine canvas texture. I find this particular medium lends itself perfectly to the photorealism I try to create and adds a certain vibrancy to the finished portrait.
A portrait is a very unique gift for your loved ones or indeed for yourself. I take great pride in my work and have built up an excellent reputation over the years. You could say it's my passion. I like to put that passion into your portrait to give you a one-of-a-kind piece you will treasure forever.
