Welcome, and thank you for visiting!
My name is Lee Archer, a professional illustrator based in Oxford, PA. I can take your favorite photograph, and produce a handcrafted rendering in graphite.
Each is a exquisite piece of original artwork, suitable

After attending the School of Visual Arts in New York, I enjoyed a successful 30-year career in the professional graphic design field, first as a designer, and later as a manager of designers and creative teams.
I began drawing in earnest in 2015, rekindling a long-dormant passion, and formed A Sketchy Business in 2018. I'm a member of the Portrait Society of America, and the Oxford Arts Alliance in Oxford, PA.
