    Demonstrations

    I show how I create my characters, animals or scenery and how to use , for example, pastel, charcoal, pencils or brushes. I show how a wide range of effects can be achieved through using media point, side, or at angles using different pressure or speed of mark making, and how these things will create very different visual qualities which may relate to different subjects.

    My description is somewhat formal, but in pactice most of my work involves humour or quirky characters and is highly entertaining for children, who frequently laugh out loud at the 'magic' of a figure coming to life on the paper.
