I’m an artist, web developer, and occasional graphic designer, living and working on the edge of Dartmoor.

Primarily, I’m interested in the essence of the human experience. In my work, I aim to capture a person’s unique quality and personality. I began working with watercolour and ink as I found the chaotic nature of the medium a good vehicle to express life. I try to work in a way in which accident is balanced with order and to strip away the unnecessary.

I’m currently offering commissioned portraits, if you would like to order a painting, feel free to email me at contact@tomblaker.com and attach a couple of photos. I aim to reply within 24 hours with a quote.

*Not all photographs are suitable for drawing. Poor light, low resolution, and lens distortion can all make for an ineffective drawing.
