Art is and always has been one of my greatest pleasures in life. I have always had a love of drawing animals and I remember being proud as punch when my primary school teacher put my horse drawing up in her office.
Studying art and design at college helped me develop my skills and I found life and analytical drawing to be where my passion lay. Exhibiting in a few local exhibitions, gave me the confidence to work as a professional artist.
I am currently working as a freelance designer and illustrator at Adelpha Design based in rural Aberdeenshire and consider art commissions. These range from family portraits, pets, wildlife and the odd landscape. I work mainly in graphite and coloured pencil although I do like to dabble with other mediums.
I am currently working on a range of limited edition prints and cards, I hope to have these available soon.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss commission a portrait or availability of work for sale.

“A huge thank you for the picture of Rosie. It arrived this morning, wrapped and protected really well. I was so pleased with the picture – you have somehow really captured Rosie’s spirit – she is a real character. I cannot wait to give it to my dad at Christmas. You are very talented. Thank you” TF
