Pattern Book

I’ve been working on a ‘pattern book’ recently, just a few images repeating different ideas and concepts of the same thing. As a way to break out of the repetition – which I can feel being an issue with my art – a bit and expand on my already existing list of skills. My son …

How to introduce yourself

I have always been a cautious, over-thinker. Fearful of what I might end up doing or how things might turn out if I completely commit to them. What changes will my dedication bring out in myself and what will I have to sacrifice and “miss-out” on while I am blindly following my latest ‘calling’ without …

Watergrove

We recently went on a walk around Watergrove reservoir and I took a few images while I was there. The vast majority of them were simple texture images for use in my illustrations – which was the aim when we went and what I was looking for – but there were a couple of images …

Water Colours – 280717

Hello everyone. I just wanted to write a quick blog post and share a I know up card with you all. I had some miniature success over on Instagram when I shared the images in my previous post. I expressed my interest in making some greetings cards out of them and have a few positive …

Inspired by nature

For the past couple of days I have been wondering how I could get a touch of nature into my artwork. I am generally an indoors person in the fact that I adore technology and the wonderful things that it can offer; as such I always feel guilty that I am not out discovering ‘the …

Art in the heart

I was out on my own walking the dog earlier – when across my path a little birdy bobbed along. I didn’t get a good look at the birds chest (and I’m not enough of an expert to tell the difference without seeing it) so I don’t know if it was a Thrush or a …
