I specialize in the beautiful and striking effect of graphite pencil illustration. My drawings have won many awards and have been published on magazine covers, program covers and in a variety of publications. My inspiration comes from a life-long love of animals and nature. Information on my Custom Pencil or Pen & Ink Portraits can be found at my website, www.PencilPlace.com.
My latest custom pencil portrait is a montage drawing of an Afghan Hound. This piece was a joy to create as the client supplied many wonderful photos of this expressive animal from which to create the final art. Lori Draper, who ordered this portrait, said: “We gave this portrait to our sister as a birthday gift in memory of her dog, Muri. He was a beautiful 4 year old Afghan Hound with lots of personality!”
I have updated my Custom Drawings and Portraits page to include Muri’s portrait. And new to the page is a Slide Show featuring a sampling of recent custom pet and family portraits!
