Bournemouth, West Yorkshire

I am an artist and drawing tutor specialising in photo-realistic portraiture drawing of people and animals.  I work from my studio in Poole and have taught adult courses at beginner, intermediate and higher levels for over 10 years, along with a thriving drawing club called The Graphite Group with over 60 members.  All of my courses are currently held at Kinson Community Centre, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH10 7LH.   I have been drawing and teaching about the fascinating subject of portraiture for a long time and this will always be my specialism.  Recently  however I have included nature in my own drawing practice and was invited to show a second, repeat showing of my solo exhibition ‘Nature’s Patterns’ at Highcliffe Castle, Highcliffe, Dorset, BH23 4LE. This ran from 24th March - 26th April.
