Walking with a sketchbook in my pocket makes for the best kind of day and while I enjoy sketching on trips abroad, I'm just as happy walking from home to work on the hills at the edge of town.
Out in the field, I use ink, twig pens, pastels and watercolour and enjoy letting pages take a dip in the stream or drag wet ink with found sheep wool and seed heads.
I like to make panoramic sketches on my own handmade concertina sketchbooks, sometimes adding written text as an integral part of the pieces.
At my work table, I might add collage, acrylics and more pastels, but my aim is always to try to keep some of the lovely spontaneity of the first sketches.
Looking forward to May 2018
I'm busy making new work for my show in this year's Kemptown Arts Trail where I'll be showing work alongside other artists in a house that is new to the festival this year.
All very exciting. But first I need to get to my work table! In the meantime, all my books are available to purchase in my online store.
