Pencil Artist

Welcome to Art by Karie-Ann!
I am a self taught pencil artist based in England. I run a successful pet portraits business and have exhibited at many shows where I often demonstrate which has led to many people asking about my techniques and so I began teaching in person from my home studio.

I am now branching out to teach online to help even more future artists with my Pencil Artist Academy where I teach very easy to follow techniques which can be used in their own artwork.
