About the Artist Damian May (Dee May) I am fascinated with light and shadow, I try to portray contrast in my work and I always add my own touch to every piece by altering features of the reference and by doing this I try to make the art work unique by using the reference as loosely as possible. I am a self taught Pencil Artist I attended Art and Design College and acquired skills in C.A.D , Textiles, History of Art , ceramics and many more Art related subjects. Pencil is my main drawing medium but I would also do pieces in pen & ink and pastel. I focus on Portraiture of people and animals and try to capture the true likeness and fine details of my subjects. Recent publications include a feature in the April issue of USA based (Colored Pencil Magazine) and a review of my work on emptyeasel.com.
