A brief overview:
I started drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil - in fact my mother still has a drawing I did when I was two years old, of a horse! I still love drawing horses, although these days I draw other subjects too! I love the challenge of capturing the character of the subject and try to convey the mood and thoughts of the subject at that particular moment. In the past I have been criticised for the photographic reality of my work, but I believe that a well-drawn portrait gives a viewer a deeper emotional reaction than a photograph, and that is what a good portrait should do, and is what I try to achieve.

I have quoted my prices under Prices and Commissions, but these are very general, so if you have any enquiries at all, please either send me a message under the Contact heading, or email me at or check out my Facebook page, Denise Parry Portraits, to keep up to date with what I'm up to!
