Nolon Stacey is a self-taught pencil artist specialising in drawings of British wildlife, rural scenery, farm animals, dogs, and landscapes. Having never had any formal art training, Nolon acquired the methods he uses through years of trial and error. Each drawing can take anywhere from 50 to 100 hours to complete.
Whilst growing up in South Yorkshire, Nolon began drawing as a child and continued his passion throughout schooling. He took a different turn, gaining a degree in Mathematics from The University of Warwick, but soon returned to his passion of drawing and began specialising in portraits of people and animals.
In 2007, Nolon released his first book ‘Drawing Made Easy: Dogs and Puppies’ through Walter Foster Publishing, and has since released three drawing tutorial books, including ‘The Art of Drawing Animals’, a collaborative collector’s book with artists from the UK, USA and Australia.
Nolon currently lives in the Yorkshire Dales and gains inspiration from the picturesque surroundings and varied wildlife. Working as a full-time pencil artist, Nolon self-publishes and sells prints internationally of his British wildlife collection, extensive dog breed range, and rural scenery work
