The portrait in watercolour is an interesting piece. As you know I love figurative work and am inspired by images that enable me to convey something beyond a copy. I feel I want to push further and get something other than replication of an image within my work. In this instance I felt there was an overlay of uncertainty and perhaps being out of her depth; not just a pretty picture. Image has today's date on it for your reference.

This image of a Japanese figure just beckoned me to draw it. I thought I would experiment with a different colour and composition just to see what would happen. A quiet walk ....
I have added today's date to the image to which I am referring.

I am delighted to be part of The National Centre for Crafts & Design Art Club online Exhibition (See Exhibitions Section for more details.) The place itself is well worth a visit. It’s a fantastic space and has thought-provoking and inspiring exhibitions.
The work that I chose to do for this exhibition was to encompass the theme Creative Healing. It is from this work that I share with you my inspiration from having done this work and thought about why I so enjoyed creating it. It was the quiet feeling of partnership that drew me into this image by Lisa Dales Photography. As I love to challenge myself I started straight in with the ink which is unforgiving if you make a mistake! See the result in Inspiration. I have put today's date on the image for reference.

My website has changed format and I hope I shall be able to present me and my work in an informative way so I shall start with the following to set the scene!
I love generating movement in all my work be it literal or internal to the composition, and I am particularly enthralled by dancers. I love the challenge of creating thoughtful, thought-provoking and even beautiful work. Leonardo da Vinci’s work, particularly his drawings, have made a huge impression on me.
