This beautifully drawn drawing of a torso in graphite pencil on heavy weight drawing paper is an original drawing of a study of a torso that I draw in the 2000. I have added light and shadow in the drawing to bring out all the muscle detail and have blended the tones of graphite pencil to not only give it detail but also bring out the highlights within the drawing.

The drawing and frame are in excellent condition and is approximately 50.5 x 55.5cm in size. The artwork is signed D. C. and dated “28/2/2000” by my hand on the bottom right hand of the drawing and is set in a light grey and white double matting and stained wooden frame with grey/blue highlights behind glass.

For peace of mind we also supply a CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY signed by the artist for that 100% guarantee of authenticity (please refer to photos). 



I have always had an interest in art and was drawing at a very young age, and pride myself on being a self taught artist. Specialising in portraiture and figurative, but equally adept in still life and landscape, I am very adaptive and versatile to a broad range of styles with a preference to classical, abstract and contemporary as well as materials and processes, including oils, acrylics, screen printing, etching, lino, pencil, pen and pastelI. I have a great passion creating commission pieces for both private and commercial use. I work closely with my clients to ensure that all criteria is met. I actively participate in art exhibitions both local and abroad for which I have won awards. I create pieces both emotive and dramatic, using techniques that I have developed over the course of my career.

Artist Statement


My artwork is ever-changing, takes many forms and expresses my views, from social, political, personal experience to colour, light, dark and beauty. Often referencing on the social/political issues, experience and explores the relationships between them, myself and art. Having engaging subjects as diverse as humanity, nature and a broad interest on most things, my work reproduces familiar visual cues, arranging them in my mind projecting and layering them on various materials, processes with each piece. Although usually each piece is different, they are all linked through visual markers or subject matter. The subject matter will determine the form and materials of each work and sometime each work will consist of a range of different mediums. The more I learn and experience the more new areas of interest arise and lead to the next piece of work.
