I’m Amie and I am a professional artist and I love to create hand drawn, realistic wildlife portraits using coloured pencil.
Ever since I can remember, I have always had a pencil, crayon or tube of glitter in my hand and created to my hearts content. I studied art and design at GCSE and A-Level but never took my studies any further, even though that fire was still there. In 2012 I picked up my love of art again and started to create the realistic coloured pencil portraits you see today.
I’m entirely self taught with coloured pencils and upon starting my journey, I found it so incredibly difficult to find any resources that could guide me and my techniques, so I developed my own which are what I now teach to people and what I am completely passionate about.
I’ve since gone on to have tutorials and work featured in 2 of the main Coloured Pencil magazines and believe that I have found my life calling – teaching others, like you, to draw realistic wildlife just like me.
