Drawing the Line

Spring Forward


Spring has arrived and finally we’ve seen the back of the snow.  The only downside to this time of year is the hour of sleep we’ll lose on Sunday morning as the clocks shift forward for British Summer Time.  Thankfully, I don’t need to stand by a muddy rugby pitch at 9am these days, but I’ll be thinking of all those parents who do – from my nice warm bed!


So much of this time of year puts a ‘spring’ in my step, but apart from the new shoots, the extra sunlight and the hope of warmer days, the absolute best part has to be the new life.  I am so lucky to live very close to woodland and have already spotted young deer out and about.  I am looking forward to drawing some of this gorgeous British wildlife in the very near future.

New Shoots, New Prices

In addition to the sanguine portraits I have been drawing for the last few years, I can now offer colour portraits. I’ve had so much fun drawing these and look forward to many happy hours creating pink-nosed pugs, brown-eyed boys and grey grannies!

All prices have been updated, and if you’ve been hoping to commission a portrait but were deterred by costs then you may be pleasantly surprised.

The Bare Essentials

If you’ve been following my posts you’ll know that we’ve spent the last few months – in fact a year and a half – debating a home extension versus moving house and many other options, to find the space we need. A fair chunk of this fantasy was to include a studio.

I won’t traumatise you with the ins and outs of why we eventually opted to move. But we’d made the decision and so our journey began….

Keeping Down Waste

We have all watched in horror, the recent news reports of our oceans slowly filling with plastic bags floating like jelly fish, and seahorses trying to mate with cotton-buds. According to EcoWatch 50% of sea turtles have already consumed plastic and the amount of plastic in the oceans is set to increase ten fold in the next decade. Governments would have us believe the solution is complicated. So, it seems that as long as the laws allow industries to continue making plastics, the responsibility for reducing demand has to lie with individuals.
