Joined 8 years ago from Cardiff, UK




Also follow me on:

Hi fellow hubbers, my name is Dave Harris, I'm 42 and I’m an artist, father of 2 and house-husband living in Cardiff in the UK. I specialise in highly detailed pencil and acrylic portraits from photographs, movie scenes and World War 2 art. Since I was a boy, I’ve had an interest in the various military operations and campaigns throughout history through to World War 2 and I am now focusing my artwork in the military and movie fields. I believe that in these difficult times of global conflicts, it's worth pausing for a while to consider the heroic feats of bravery of ordinary men and women who went to extraordinary lengths in combat and covert situations of days gone by. Hope you enjoy my hubs and thanks for stopping by!
