To get you in the mood, one of our vendors will be telling you about themselves.
Today it's the turn of;
I am based in Swansea, South Wales. I take commissions from the UK and overseas, and currently specialise in celebrity portraits. I also take commissions from a diverse range such as family, children, pets, and illustration work.
I hold a BA Honours Degree in fine art painting, and during my degree I specialised in creating large figure paintings in oils. I’ve had two recent exhibitions: the first was in London for Prince's 30th anniversary of Purple Rain, and the second took place in Stoke on Trent for Robbie Williams children’s charity Donna Louise Children's Hospice.
What I love about drawing portraits is the uniqueness in every individuals face, and being able to study every fine detail that makes up not just the features of the subject but also the personality. I am fascinated with tone and fine detail. I also have an eye for creating a composition from several different photographs. This makes the piece unique to each individual.
