When I was commissioned this pencil portrait of little Grace (aged a little over two), knowing it was a present for her father, I was keen for this piece to tap into a father’s memory of his daughter rather than it just be a portrait. I therefore chose to be looking down at her slightly rather than at the same level.

Possibly one of my proudest moments as an artist was when Grace recognised herself when I dropped the piece off and shouted “That’s Gracey!”.
