I’m a self taught artist since 2020. Thanks to COVID-19 and being in lock down for many months, I decided to take up drawing as a way to help with the anxiety and depression. I took some classes online to get the basics and then practiced as much as I could and asked many artists for feedback.
I started out using only pencil and was drawn towards charcoal. I think it’s the ability to move the charcoal to how I want it by using my fingers or a brush. So now my medium of choice is charcoal and chalk and the occasional use of pastel pencils.
I have a day job, a wife and two fur babies (Fozzie who is a Yorkiepoo and Gidget who is a Jack Russell/Whippet mess, sorry meant mix).
