For 22 years I taught Science in a Comprehensive School. No art, no time for art. Then I had to quit. As part of my therapy, I discovered I could draw a bit.
In 1996 I bought a box of Derwent Artist pencils - and have never looked back.
I am largely self taught, but have had some life classes, and a memorable three day course with Ronald Swanwick. Apart from this, books have been my tutors, until I dicovered I could actually converse with some of the authors on the Net. For seven years now I have been taking commissions, mostly of dogs, but lately more human portraits, and I have done portraits for clients as far afield as USA, Denmark and Switzerland. At present, I am finding it very hard to get at my pencils - I am much too busy with the UKCPS!      www.colourpencilart.co.uk

Coloured pencils are the best medium I have found due to the amount of control that can be achieved and their capacity for layering. On the right paper, several layers can be added in an almost painterly fashion. The only thing that is planned in my drawings is the composition. Everything else works itself out as I proceed.
Dogs are lively creatures and I like to show them that way. They have such expressive eyes and can communicate most of their needs with just a twitch
of the eyebrow. Their coats are rich in colour and texture; no two are the same and every one presents a challenge. The excitement for me is the feeling that these dogs are going to sit still a moment longer and will get up and walk right off
the page. If the viewer feels the urge to stroke or pat my dogs then I have accomplished what I set out to achieve.
