This week has been all about the feather. I have been lost in it. I love it when that happens. Spitalfields’ Beedell Coram gets the award for the best name. It’s coming along nicely. I am drawing London, oh yes I am.

Commission Commissions often end up prompting me to have a slightly new take on things. For some reason, I had never really thought of doing smaller versions of my botanical circles as requested by my wise commissioner but now I know that it works and I like making them. Good knowledge!

I’m pleased to say that my collection of small originals has found a lovely home at Mine Gallery in Carshalton (SW London) who already have some of my larger pieces on display. Back at the farm (not a farm) this is what I’ve been brewing: 1. Gardners’ I water coloured my illustration of Gardners’ and […]

I have been working on a lot of secretive little bits and bobs recently but here is the last of my botanical drawing class. I loved drawing this iris — that perfect combination of delicate petals and graphic, strong shapes.

Catching up a little here because I have been working on lots of things I can’t share. Every Bread I was really delighted to design the logo for Everybread in Manchester — a micro-bakery that makes hand-crafted bread and sells it locally. It’s wonderful bread too — I have tasted it myself and my toddler […]

1. Botanical Drawing Class If you’re going to spend four hours on one drawing, I guess you may as well draw something challenging. 2. House Portrait I have been working on a house portrait this week but I can’t post more here as I believe it’s a gift. Here are some windows! 3. My Other […]
