Originally a 3D digital artist, I traded my tablet pen for a pastel and fell in love with the medium almost instantly. With a BA (Hons) degree in Visual Effects, I decided after university to go back to my roots of working with traditional materials. I taught myself to work in pastel after years of experience with pencil.
Now working as an Art Technician, I am surrounded by creativity and inspiration every day. I then get to go home to my own projects and also create commissioned pastel paintings from my studio. Although self-taught, I love to pick up techniques from other artists and share my methods with others.
