Welcome to the People Portraits Gallery!

The drawings in my gallery are drawn with graphite pencil on paper. I also occasionally work in coloured pencil on paper for clients that prefer a full colour drawing or a pencil drawing with colour highlights.

The gallery shows examples of some of my previous family portrait commissions. I have created portraits of children, group family portraits, wedding portraits and portraits of couples to name a few.

I often work from more than one reference photo, especially for group family portraits. I prepare a portrait proof / mock up for clients, which shows the composition of a portrait and gives the client an idea of how a portrait can work.

I can work from a recent photograph or from a vintage photograph. I have recently worked on some vintage portraits, which translate particularly well in a graphite pencil drawing.
