My drawings are carefully crafted to achieve inimitable contrasts and depth. Whether drawing portraits or birds, I always start with the eyes...

The old English Proverb, that the eyes are the windows of the soul, rings true and it is this philosophy which underpins my work and bonds the observer with my subject.
