Greetings! Let me introduce myself.

Hi! My name is Jo. I’m a self-taught graphite pencil portrait artist, a self-taught graphic designer and a very crafty person.

Drawing is my life's passion. I love to create beautiful and unique graphite pencil portraits from photographs. My portraits strive to be photo realistic and aim to capture not only the features of my subject, but also their essence. Every Fine Etch portrait takes a minimum of 20 hours to create. My portraits are not just sketches but are highly detailed, expertly rendered and almost photographic in appearance. I work meticulously to ensure every detail, every angle and every shadow is accurately captured in your portrait.

I take commissions and would love to create a beautiful portrait for you. Please visit my website http://fineetch.com.auand enjoy browsing through my Portrait Gallery. You can also find me on Red Bubble where I am an active member and happy host or follow me on Twitter and Facebook.

I look forward to blogging about my art and my life in general. Thanks for reading!
