I am a full time professional artist living in a beautiful area of rural Ontario, Canada. For many years I concentrated on custom portraiture, but have recently begun expanding into the world of online art sales via several sites. After selling almost two thousand ACEO's on Ebay, I am now concentrating on using my favorite mediums, pencil and oil pastels! I am passionate about creating realistic images, often with strong contrast in values.
For me, drawing well is of utmost importance. I have written a 15 page booklet entitled 'Learn To Draw' which will appeal to all ages. It covers topics such as values, shading, basic shapes, and advice about which tools are good to use. Many of my pencil drawings are shown in the booklet. This booklet is available as a PDF Tutorial as well. If you would like to purchase the PDF version of this booklet, please go HERE to do so. Once purchased, you may print as many copies as you like. At the same site, many of my images are available as digital downloads for a very reasonable price!
