Equine and wildlife artist, working in coloured pencil and graphite.

Two front legs and a tummy! It doesn't look like much progress but he is HUGE, so I'm really pleased with how he is coming along 🦌 Love the #howimakearthappen idea from @broadcanvasart - here I've shown only five of the approximately twenty colours I'm using (a mix of @fabercastelluk Polychromos, @carandache Supracolour, and Luminance), on @st_cuthberts_mill Somerset Velvet. • #deer #stag #reddeer #wildlife #britishwildlife #animals #art #animalart #animalartist #pencil #drawing #colouredpencil #fabercastell #polychromos #carandache #pencildrawing #pencilart #originaldrawing #artoftheday #illustration #animalillustration #wildlifeartist @fabercastellglobal
I'm delighted to share a recent commission, a stunning English Longhorn cow! I nicknamed her Martha while I drew her, and it has stuck 😂 I loved drawing her, and I'm super proud of how she's turned out 😊 🐂🐮 • #cow #cattle #englishlonghorn #rarebreed #cows #farming #dairyfarming #animal #animalportrait #colouredpencil #colouredpencilart #fabercastell #polychromos #carandache #cowart #animalartistry
In love with this giant dude already... though I haven't yet though of a name! Any ideas? The original and prints will be for sale, and I already feel when he's finished he'll be one of my best works 🦌 Coloured pencil on Somerset Velvet. • #deer #stag #reddeer #wildlife #britishwildlife #animals #art #animalart #animalartist #pencil #drawing #colouredpencil #fabercastell #polychromos #carandache #pencildrawing #pencilart #originaldrawing #artoftheday #illustration #animalillustration #wildlifeartist @fabercastellglobal @fabercastelluk @st_cuthberts_mill
Pencils are sharpened, the kettle is on, the corgi has been fed. It can only be time for a new original! Can you tell what it is yet (other than gigantic!)?
Loving the beautiful horses at the @cotswoldshow , especially those of @ben_actionhorses ! If you wanted to bring their grace and majesty home with you, I've got both limited edition prints and the original of "State of Grace" here with me for sale! • #horse #equine #horseart #equineart #spanishhorse #pencildrawing #pencil #graphite #horseportrait

While I wait for my latest commission to be delivered, here's another piece of work I've done recently! I love doing typography work, and I was delighted to be asked to do the table plan for the lovely @hannahallen3217 's wedding last week. It was a truly beautiful day and I was so pleased to be a part of it! • #typography #wedding #weddingtableplan #posca #poscapen #handlettering
I've been a bit quiet on the art front recently, and this is why. On Wednesday the 27th of February, my younger sister passed away. She had beaten cancer, lived (and really lived) a year with an artificial heart. It was the transplant operation that was meant to give her back her life that took her. I can only thank people from the bottom of my heart for their kind words, patience, and understanding. One of her final wishes was donations to the two organisations that helped her, and so, if you wanted to donate, here are the links (also in my bio). https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/beccahenderson-churchillhospitalcancercare https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/beccahenderson-harefield Thank you all again. I'll be replying to all messages and sending out all orders next week after Becca's funeral ♥️
