Can you paint with all the colours of the wind  ? 

As a child I would sit for hours and hours drawing Disney characters, pausing the VHS so I could copy it. I have drawn them so often I can draw a number of characters purely from memory. This film was one of my favourites and as trying to engage a younger audience into drawing I […]

Wicked but beautiful 

I have decided to stop commissions for a while and draw what I love , films, characters, musicians, what ever I love . And one of my favourite characters from last year was the brilliant maleficent.            So here she is .  

The ballerina

The sultans of swing.

This commissioned drawing was for my dad, his favourite band being Direstraits . My childhood was full of sultans of swing, money for nothing, brothers in arms, and many more guitar and drum solos.
