Last month, I took part in a daily drawing challenge. Cards on the table, I wasn't very good at it. I started well , but by mid month I'd become sporadic at best, and by the end of the month I'd stopped even pretending I was going to post a picture every day. BUT it's...

It's been a while since I shared a family portrait commission so let me introduce you to Julie, Iain, James and Chalky the dog, commissioned by Julie for Iain's birthday.

This family are no strangers to my drawing board. I drew Natasha and Evie when Evie was just a baby, then again when Dan and Natasha got married in 2013. I know Natasha had been wanting to update her collection for some time as, since their wedding portrait, a little s...

As part of my daughter's school topic 'Art on Your Doorstep', I was asked to go in and talk to the children about my work. While discussing this with her teacher, I blurted out that I was really interested what would happen in children were asked to make a portrait tha...
