Last month, I took part in a daily drawing challenge. Cards on the table, I wasn't very good at it. I started well , but by mid month I'd become sporadic at best, and by the end of the month I'd stopped even pretending I was going to post a picture every day. BUT it's...

I quite like February. It's winter, but without the end-of-Christmas woe. Most people have finally been paid again after the inevitable Skint January, and if you are one of those masochists who inexplicably deny yourself all the good stuff and make January doubly miser...

This family are no strangers to my drawing board. I drew Natasha and Evie when Evie was just a baby, then again when Dan and Natasha got married in 2013. I know Natasha had been wanting to update her collection for some time as, since their wedding portrait, a little s...

As part of my daughter's school topic 'Art on Your Doorstep', I was asked to go in and talk to the children about my work. While discussing this with her teacher, I blurted out that I was really interested what would happen in children were asked to make a portrait tha...

Oh, I loved making this beachy picture, even though it took me the best part of a week to do those pebbles (it's 16x20 inches)! It's set on Seaham beach and features Jen and her family, who used to live nearby and still misses it. The image was commissioned by Jen's fr...
