Here’s some things I’ve been up to: I did my first residency (thank you to Insert Studios for funding the making of Heirloom, my lovely little pink tree), I’ve made lots of new work including a paper crown, some frames of various shapes and sizes, and lots and lots of new drawings. I got a new sketchbook and brush pen that I’ve just started using, and I’ve been experimenting a lot with Procreate! I always forget to update things here – I do so many drawings and projects and tend not to dwell on them when they’re finished. But I need to get better at recognising my accomplishments, so here we are; some new work, a residency, and other stuff that I’ve already forgotten about. It’s going well!
Kirkstall Abbey’s 2019 art trail was a success! I was situated in a little pub, a 10 minute walk away from the historic Abbey, and I shared a corner with a very talented illustrator called Sophie (from Cat and Pencil). The weather was warm, the drinks were poured, and inspiration was passed around like it’ll never run out. A massive thank you to everyone who came along and took interest in what I do… You’re a part of my big surrealist dream now. Don’t worry, it’s nice and there’s loads of room.
