Happy New Year!

Here we are already, last day of the year 2019. It sure has gone fast, every year it seems to go faster. I have had a productive year with my art and would like to say thank you to those people who have commissioned me this year, its great to get back into this type of work, something I use to do so many years ago. I’ve enjoyed painting for you all and bringing your loved ones out in art. Also thank you to those people who have purchased my original paintings and drawings, I appreciate your support!

I’ve put together some random pieces of my art for the year as well as a selection of my crochet items into the following visuals. Happy New Year Friends, best wishes for a fabulous 2020 for everyone!!




This beautiful dog has been brought to life through art, created with pastel pencils. A lot of fine hairs and layering. I once had a dog just like Madix, definitely heart stealers!


Below are some progress photos of how Madix came together on paper …


‘Boxer and Koda’

I hope everyone had a great Christmas with those that mean the most to them! I can now share this painting of Boxer and Koda, a pair of curly hair retrievers. Painting the hairs kept me busy for a while, I’ve used pastel pencils on coloured stock. A special commissioned gift for a lady who loves her dogs dearly!


Below are some progress photos of their creation …


Mia in Graphite Pencil

I recently snapped a couple of photos of my friends cat Mia. I decided to do a graphite drawing from one of the photos. I’ve used a HB, 6B and 9B with a tortillon for blending, here are a couple of progress photos along with the final artwork…
