I can produce high speed portraits to entertain your guests. My strengths are helping people to feel relaxed and at ease when I’m drawing them: we can chat and I still get the person’s face on the paper. People will be amazed at the speed at which they will recognise their friends/family when watching me work. Working on A3 paper (twice the size of normal office paper) it is possible for me to produce a black and white portrait in approximately 10 mins.
For the last 3 summers I have been performing at the Fringe, drawing faces at high speed on the Royal Mile. I was the resident portrait artist at the Kelpies (in Grangemouth) in the summer of 2015. In 2018, I had a portrait accepted into the Paisley Art Institute’s 130th Annual Exhibition, where one of my portraits hung on the wall of a museum for a couple of months.

Comments from happy customers: Molly Horsley’s comment from the Fringe 2019. “You drew me and my two daughters too! We love it x”. Marc Hall said about my portrait of his dog. “Amazing portrait of my best mate Mordy! Highly recommend!”
The portraits are placed in cardboard tubes to allow for safe travel home.
