I saw this young man's work on Facebook when my Granddaughter told me about him. So yesterday when I had the opportunity to meet him and find out more about him I took it.
I was very pleasantly surprised for although so talented he is a very modest and self-effacing young man.
Broodingly handsome, this young man is only 22 years old. Born in Southampton in Hampshire towards the end of June he now lives in Salisbury in Wiltshire.
As a Cancerian he shares his star sign with such notable artists as Jean Cocteau and Tracey Emin. His work is, however, unique. Using nothing but a pencil and eraser he creates beautiful portraits and cartoons with surprising attention to detail.
Currently about to commence his final year at University, where he is studying Law, Matt is self-trained and only took up drawing some eighteen months ago. He used the relaxation of drawing to off- set the intense studies needed to reach his goal of becoming an Attorney specializing in Employment Law.
His portraits are incredibly lifelike and one can see the emotions of the Cancerian in his finished works.
This young girl is one such portrait that Matt has produced.
This one shows Matt's technique and compares it to a photograph.
A lovely young woman

This is, to me, an opportunity, not only to support a young and up coming talent, but to make an investment for the future. On many occasions one sees something that is good and misses the chance presented to take advantage.
Don't miss out on this one!
