Hello everyone, this is my first ever blog post! Please excuse me when I get used to the techy side of things, there maybe a few hiccups along the way.

When teaching I always told my students that their sketchbooks are like a ‘brain on the page’, it’s important not to become too precious about your drawing but focussing on letting your ideas flow and using the pages to record thoughts, feelings about work in progress. I would like to think my blog is going to become bit like that; sharing with you the messy, sometimes haphazard design development as well as the more polished end results. Today I’m sharing with you a piece of work that I’m currently working on. It was inspired by the gorgeous sunlight and lovely crisp shadows whilst drawing out in the garden recently.
