Animal Portraits

My coloured pencil, pastel paintings and acrylic paintings capture the beauty and character of the animals that share our world, from the wild creatures that roam our forests to the domesticated animals that live on our farms. With a focus on detail and texture, I strive to bring each animal to life in a way that is both realistic and expressive. Through my art, I aim to highlight the unique personalities and characteristics of each animal, as well as their place in our shared ecosystem. Whether it's a curious farm goat, a majestic bison, or a playful fox, each subject is an opportunity to showcase the wonder and diversity of the natural world. By exploring the subtle nuances of each animal's form and expression, I hope to inspire a deeper appreciation for the beauty and complexity of our animal companions. Through my work, I hope to foster a connection with nature and a sense of responsibility for protecting and preserving these amazing creatures and their habitat

Human Portraits

My pastel and graphite portraits capture the essence of the human form with a focus on realism and emotional depth. Through my art, I aim to reveal the unique character and spirit of each subject. With a keen eye for detail and an emphasis on capturing subtle nuances of expression and gesture, I strive to create portraits that are both lifelike and emotionally compelling. Whether it's the intense gaze of a young child, the weathered features of an elderly person, or the vulnerability of a figure in repose, each portrait is an opportunity to explore the complexity and beauty of the human experience. By focusing on the individuality of each subject, I hope to inspire a deeper appreciation for the diversity and richness of the human form. Through my work, I hope to create a connection between the viewer and the subject, evoking empathy, understanding, and a sense of shared humanity.
