Welcome to my website. My name is Deborah Dowie and I am a self-taught colour pencil artist.

As a child, I would always be drawing or painting. In recent years, drawing has become my relaxation and passion. I belong to an informal local art group, where we meet each week to paint and draw together. I have exhibited at several locations in recent years and have been commissioned by owners to draw portraits of their loved pets.

As a result of my early career as a tool-designer in mechanical engineering, I particularly enjoy detail in a picture. Fur and feather are always enjoyable challenges and I recreate the small details by using multiple layers of colour pencil.

I produce a selection of prints and cards of my artwork for sale.
