My name is Rio Willis...I am 19 years old and I am from Bolton. I studied Art & Design for 2 years at Wigan & Leigh college specialising in fine art. I then started university to study illustration and animation and soon realised that my main skills are in pencil sketching and painting.  

 

Most of my work consists of realistic, detailed portraits, however I also dabble in abstract paintings and pop art styles and I love experimenting with colour. I do this because I enjoy it and I love the challenge of making my portraits as life like as possible, and to capture the emotion and vibe from the photos I create them from. I don't charge expensive rates as I see this as more of a hobby and want to keep it as something I can enjoy.  

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE ARTIST...
