  • A Life Drawing SessionA Life Drawing Session 27 October 2017
    Last night I went to an event that was part life drawing, part Shibari performance. I hadn’t drawn real people for a long time (just stick figures) and was quite nervous in case I was truly awful! Here’s what happened… The ...
  • Wine Glass IllustrationsWine Glass Illustrations 25 October 2017
    I’ve been working on some new designs this week and my favourite one is these wine glass illustrations. Apparently it’s best to drink each variety of wine in a “varietal specific glass” – who knew?! Personally I have tended to ...

    Not sure if I’ve mentioned this before but earlier this year I invested in a pyrography kit. I love it – I get to draw and burn things at the same time! It’s taken a bit of getting used to, and ...
  • More Scottish Themed Drawings 5 October 2017

  • Autumn in watercolourAutumn in watercolour 16 September 2017
    Autumn has always been my favourite season – I don’t particularly like being hot (unless I’m on a beach) so the drop in temperature suits me, and it’s sooooo beautiful when the trees start changing colour. I decided to have a ...
  • Garden Themed Illustrations 16 August 2017
    I no longer have a garden, just some decking with a table and chairs – I love being able to sit outside without having a lawn to mow or weeds to pull… I do however have a few pot plants to ...
  • Finding a Drawing Style 15 August 2017

    Going to music festivals is one of my very favourite things to do in the whole wide world – I love camping and I love music so it’s heaven for me to combine the two… I had a great time ...
