This piece is of my dear friend Laura Garvey. We studied together in Westport College of Further Education. This piece was created during my time in Westport CFE and as part of my Drawing module with my tutor Claire Griffen in 2018.
I decided to draw this portrait of Laura and another portrait of my pal Paul Kempton to show my appreciation of all the great friends I made that year. Our whole class got on harmoniously, it could not have been better!
Anyway, this piece is made using Faber Castell Polychromo Pencils and the background is achieved with patterned tissue paper cut to size around the subject.
I really love this piece, at first I never wanted to sell it. When we had our exhibition in the Custom House Gallery I put it as ‘NFS’ (Not For Sale)
But now I’ve decided to sell it, because I can’t keep holding onto my art, I need to let others enjoy it.
This piece is not for sale as a print, only as the original.
It can be framed, but at the moment it is unframed.
