Please tell us a little about how you got started in coloured pencil art.

I saw a book in the  library and was fascinated by what you can do with coloured pencils.

What do you like about using coloured pencils in your artwork?

I like the feel of the pencil making contact with the paper. I love drawing and this takes drawing to the next level.

Which are your favourite pencils and supports/surfaces to work on?

Yes I do now that you mention it….. Prismacolor, Progresso, Stabilo pencils.  Surfaces…..Mat board, Colourfix pastel paper and Drafting film.

Do you have any particular themes or subjects in your art? What are they and why ?

Animals, Birds.(i have always loved both.)

Please tell us about any Awards or Exhibitions you have been featured in.

Yes I won a Pencil award at the Magenta Artists Art & Photography Show. I also do pet portraits and have sold a lot of bird pictures.

 

Thankyou so much Linda for sharing with us your work and letting us get to know about you.
