ABOUT ME

Award winning / Published Artist.  Member of the UKCPS  (United Kingdom Coloured  Pencil Society) 

Great great niece of World famous artist David Dewsberry,  who specialised in painting floral studies and is acknowledged as a master painter of Orchids.  Great Great Granddaughter of George Henry Dewsberry – a talented ceramic artist of mainly tile designs, some of which are in Osborne House, Queen Victoria’s Residence on the Isle of Wight. 

My love of coloured pencil art began in 2010 when I discovered the UK Coloured Pencil Society.  I have since enjoyed working on a variety of subjects.   Working from photographs I use top quality, lightfast materials, mostly Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils, Pastel pencils and Graphite on acid free paper.

I am currently working on a series of animal Portraits.  I aim to capture each animal’s individual personality.  I have always loved animals and shared my life and homes with quite a few over the years, including cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs.  Most were rescues.  They can be challenging, but are very rewarding, especially when they blossom with the correct understanding and patience.  Each one has their own individual personality, character, foibles and quirks just like us humans, and I love that.

I am currently owned by a gorgeous, cheeky, rescued Westie dog called Bobby.  He’s great company, keeps me entertained, and loves to make me smile and giggle every day.
