Coloured Pencil

The first graphite was discovered in my home country of Cumbria, so it's probably only right that I should also use coloured pencil in my work.  I especially like drawing on coloured paper: fawn and tan colours being my favourites.  I find that white stands out beautfully against the background and really makes a drawing 'ping'.

The gallery below shows some of my previous work.  For my current availability please see my Etsy shop.
