Casey Allum

Casey Allum, is a professional portrait artist and illustrator who grew up in the Langdale Valley, Cumbria. She specialises in animal and human portraiture using pencils, inks, pastels and coloured pencils, oils, acrylics and inks.

“My graphite pencil portraits draw attention to the negative space and light surrounding the subject which is so often discarded; this space is important to help the subject breathe and ultimately draws the eye to the detail in the portrait rather than the overall sometimes complicated composition. I pay close attention to the finer details in my work, construction, form and texture, being able to perfectly describe a subject with a pencil line; that’s truly where my passion lies.” - Casey Allum.
