"Pencil artwork can easily be seen as a basic form of artistic impression but I believe its simplicity to be the main attraction.  Working solely with a pencil, subjects are reduced down to their basic tone and texture, making it a deceptively complicated discipline.  I have spent the last 10 years developing these skills to be able to present to people my unique style.  My approach is to achieve detailed realism while giving life and character to my subjects.  The beautiful scenery and wildlife surrounding my home in the Yorkshire Dales is a continued inspiration for my work."
