Ian Hedley is a graphite fine artist based in Dorset. His work seeks to connect the beauty surrounding us in the natural world with the beauty that is within us all.
Ian works almost exclusively with wooden pencils on paper. No other medium makes him feel as connected to what he’s doing. He builds his pictures up with thousands upon thousands of tiny little marks, giving them a vibrancy that can often be missing from traditional pencil drawings. Ian strongly believes that art is a force for positive change. His work aims to help us as individuals through a mindful and gentle beauty but he also donates proceeds from sales to good causes. He has been able to, and continues to, directly support the RNLI, the British Red Cross and the Lantern Trust (a local charity working with vulnerable and homeless people).
