Becky Gouverneur Charcoal and Pencil Animal Portraits

Becky was born and raised in Buckinghamshire, which serves as a constant source of inspiration. Following a love of art and design from childhood, Becky went on to study photography and textile design followed by an 8 year career as a freelance photographer.

She has since developed her specialist charcoal techniques, but her primary focus remains quirky, large scale, high contrast charcoal animal portraiture on a stark white background showing the influence of professional studio photography. This is also what truly sets her apart from other talented animal artists.

The combination of high quality, insightful photography and highly realistic drawing techniques produces stunning images full of character and fun.

She is also a regular tutor at The Courtyard Art Studio on Claydon Estate.

She is an active supporter of Medical Detection Dogs and has also been involved with leading art workshops with Child Bereavement UK.
