Indie Matharu is a photo realistic pencil artist based in the UK. She started drawing when she was at school as it allowed her to express herself without verbal explanation. She studied graphic design at University and has been working as an artist since 2015.

Indie is inspired and influenced by emotion and her works capture the moment and character of her subjects. She specialises in pencil drawing because she is attracted to its many tones and its ability to convey a multitude of emotions depending on how the pencil is used.


Her work challenges the boundaries of what is possible with a simple pencil creating works that are photo realistic and tell stories that communicate the character of the subject through their energy.


She approaches her subjects as individuals that require techniques drawn from life drawing, architectural drawing and strong use of light and shade.
