Let’s create floral magic together!

I’m so excited for my next Floral Print Motif Workshop as it’s not very often that I get to host events like this & I truly love them. I only ever teach smallish groups so the class feels super relaxed & intimate. We draw a lot, I present a couple of informal talks & there’s time […]

New Design Work & Trying New Things

New beginnings…

I’m such a summer person so I’ve been making time to get out into my garden & outdoor studio recently for some drawing sessions. I’ve been looking at some lovely floral photographic inspo (I always ask permission before using imagery) & doing my usual abstract thing. I’ve ben using my favourite pens from Uniball along with […]
