I am a self taught sketch artist specialising in portraiture.  I also enjoy life drawing & painting seascapes.  I have worked with a variety of mediums but my preference is for pencil  


Art & Creativity is in my family blood.  My grandmother was an actress and budding artist and my grandfather was a keen art collector so growing up, my parents house was filled with pieces of inherited works, both from renowned artists and from my grandmother herself.  I have lovely memories of sitting for a portrait sketch by my Uncle Hank, a sketch that I cherish even today 

I work from my front room based in Richmond Upon Thames. a home that I share with my 7 year old son Gilbert, a beautiful Blue-Point Burmese cat called Matilda and 3 fish   


Rattle & Tail began when I started to sketch portraits of children & pets as gifts for my family & friends 


I feel very privileged to be invited into your lives to draw your loved ones.  I look forward to working with you
