My only qualification is a GCSE in Art & Design. After a few years off, I began painting in acrylic and drawing in graphite for fun in my free time in 2007. I have a mathematician’s high attention to detail and desire to be thorough, however long a task takes. Graphite pencil compliments these qualities more readily than acrylic paint, and quickly became a very potent medium for me. I now use charcoal (with dry-brushing), colour pencil and pastel, and have even made a return to acrylic paint.
