Sleep walking

Another drawing to the collection. This one is roughly A3 in size and I'm getting better at the detail working on this scale.

tales in ink

I've been really enjoying creating these small pen drawings. I don't have the luxury of a studio at the moment but there is something really enchanting about making drawings in my bedroom. It takes me back to childhood when a piece of paper and any drawing material was enough. The drawings are small and fit so easy in the hand that a book of this scale could be really special and intimate.
I think I have a project on my hands...

Little girls that fiddle

If Im feeling a bit tired and just want to chill and watch TV, but still be slightly productive at the same time, I like to make pen drawings in my small sketch book and because I'm slightly sleepy the results can be quite surprising and strange.

Inverleith at VAS Annual show.

Delighted that one of my large scale drawings Inverleith, was part of this years VAS - Visual Arts Scotland - Transforming, Annual Exhibition. I was also pleased to see such a rich mixture of contemporary works made from traditional materials, including drawing, painting and tapestry.
Extra bonus that an image of Inverleith was also in the catalogue.

Pen and Ink workshop

A few weeks back I gave a Pen and Ink drawing workshop for Turriffc Arts, an Art Group based in Turriff, Aberdeenshire. There was a great turn out and the work that was produced was fantastic.

Creeping i-phone cover

I am very happy with my mobile phone cover, featuring one of my drawings, Hedera from 2008.
For a while I have wanted to design my own cover so with the help of Jessops, online store I did.
It is so easy and would highly recommend them.

Below is the original drawing.
