About The Artist
Working in pastel pencils, particularly the Carbothello brand, I strive to capture the personality and mood of my subject, harnessing the pencils' capacity for high detail and their silky texture in creating a realistic fur effect and expressive liquid eyes which have become the trademark of my work.
I work under the name of Dapplegrey Art to highlight my love of animals, with a particular bias towards horses.
Much of my work comes from commissions in the form of pet portraits; nothing can compare to the exhilaration of seeing someone's delight at having their best friend come to life in a piece of original art.
More recently, I have begun undertaking children's' portraits as well. Many of my stock pictures are taken from imagination and with the addition of a touch of quirky humour here, a pinch of fantasy there and a large helping of mischief thrown in, the aim is to build a highly stylised and unusual gallery.
I am a member of Frimley and Camberley Society of Arts and I have prints on sale in various outlets in Camberley. I am an occasional demonstrator, a regular on the Isle of Wight craft fayre scene and have sent commissions as far afield as Australia and India.
