Merry Christmas Everyone! I've been busy doing a few pet portraits for the festive season. I've also enjoyed having some christmas decorations in Magpies vintage and collectibles shop in Surbiton. Some of my prints will be in there too in the new year and hopefully lots of new seasonal decorations. It's a wonderful little new shop with some one of a kind items, so if you're in the area check it out. Have a lovely Christmas and a great new year!

Recently drawing outside has been a little bit difficult, mainly due to the weather. Also i've been feeling really stuck with my usual work. Although I am itching to get outside and draw some autumn leaves, but I think it might be December before I get a chance to do that! Anyway I've been focusing on Christmas decorations because it's a nice use of my coloured pencils and it's fun! I drew this little deer today, he might be appearing on some cards soon.

I've been busy hand-painting these wooden snowflake decorations in time for some craft fairs, I also put them in my etsy shop to see what the interest will be like. Have a look for yourself here.


Really pleased to have been involved in the latest issue of Conjunction zine.
The issue was on the theme of meat. I had lots of fun making these images of butcher's knives, which I made using monoprinting. They were screenprinted and included as printed ephemera in the zine, which you can buy HERE.

A collection of little drawings from my recent (amazing) trip to Strasbourg, they're from a mixture of places in france and germany.

The dog has been found!  Congratulations to Marcus Butt who received a giclee print in the post, and in return I got one of his wonderful heron risoprints which is fitting in well on my arty wall.

Old News

I finally got round to photographing and uploading photos of the Richmond book which I made and sold to raise funds for Rare Kingston. 
All the drawings/photographs were made over one weekend in yorkshire. You can see them all on my website now HERE (!)

In other news, I'm off to Strasbourg for a week. Expect some french/german drawings when I get back.

Some snaps from Cornwall - apologies for the lines, my camera is old and ridden with faults

After a week of being stuck literally head first in goods cages trying to find very specific cushions at work, what better way to end the week than by designing cushions for Ohh Deer's cushion competition

I have this problem where if I think about a brief too much and plan what I'm going to do, when I sit down to do it I do the exact opposite. I have no idea which 2 of these 5 to choose. Opinions welcomed. 




 Finally got my pictures developed from Yorkshire - camera jammed and the film got a little damaged, hence the lines you can see on some of them.

After trying and failing to draw the harbour (and ripping it up) i settled on just drawing a little boat in the sea, and then I stressed out about how many colours are in the sea, so I drew some nice rocks. I like the rocks.

Find the dog..

Drawing from Coverack in Cornwall, the sea is mighty hard to draw with coloured pencils.
 I tried for so long to try and capture this lady walking her dog, but they just blended in with the rocks. If you spot the rock that looks like a dog comment/ email me and i'll send you a mix of some printy things in the post. 


A quick sketch from the lizard peninsula

Just got back from Wagrain in Austria which is pretty much my spiritual home. It wasn't really a drawing holiday but I sneaked in a few drawings anyway. I did the pencil sketch in a peaceful moment in the gondola lift, just wanted to capture the line of the mountains.  The stamp is from the top of a little (but tiring) walk we did.

  A family hut by the JägerSee (hunting lake?)

Alpine huts from the valley (with attempted misty trees) 

Drawing feeds my soul, and Austria feeds my soul. 

My soul is feeling very much full. 

Yorkshire Sheepies

For some reason, even though I was surrounded by the most beautiful yorkshire landscapes, I found it most relaxing to draw the sheep, perhaps because I wasn't being bitten to death by midges..
