Behind the Artwork: ‘A Gathering of Ancients’

It’s that time again, to explore the story/meaning behind the artwork. A noble feat, but not an exact science – certainly not when it comes to my own work. This drawing has many titles – at the moment I’ve titled it ‘A Gathering of Ancients’, however, when I first completed it I named it ‘Energy …

Behind the Artwork: The World is Unravelling

What inspired this? The ‘World is Unravelling’ is the most recent piece in my series of drawings. This one was inspired by the incredible sun that we saw in England on the day that ex-hurricane Ophelia visited us. The sun was a eerie shade of pink and the feel of the day was weirdly calm …

Behind the Artwork: Conversations with Ursa Major

‘Conversations with Ursa Major‘ is my latest finished piece from my current work. The series itself focuses on the subconscious, dreams, fantasy, emotion and reality. Each piece has an element of the ‘real’ in it but it is quite hard to translate as the viewer.  What is the work about? To be honest, none of …

Behind the Artwork: ‘You Can Have my Body But You Can’t Have Me.’

More answers about more artworks… What is the artwork about? On first glance this seems like a romantic piece, whereas, in my head it’s quite the opposite. The two ‘lovers’ dance on the beach under the eclipsed sun. The male holds the female with a firm grip; he’s so afraid to let her go that …

Behind the Artwork: ‘Under the Influence, Losing Control’

To continue my series about my current work here are a few questions about my newest work; ‘Under the Influence, Losing Control’ and about my art practice itself… What is the artwork about? Well, as the title suggests it’s about losing control, and letting something (or someone) take the reigns even if you don’t really …

Behind the Artwork: ‘Blurring the Lines Between Fantasy & Reality’

Greetings. It’s been a while since I have updated this blog, but I’ve had a few questions about my artwork. So I’m going to do a series of blogs (I hate the word blog) about each piece of work. First we have one of my personal favourites; ‘Blurring the Lines Between Fantasy & Reality’. What …

New Work: Seahorse

New Work: Seahorse

Over the last few months I have been working hard creating new drawings and experimenting with a few different themes. I always come back to sea creatures and woodland animals, sometimes with the addition of a mysterious lady. My most recent project however has been designing illustrations for notebooks and other illustrated gifts, which are …

New Project…Under the Sea

New Project…Under the Sea

I have always loved the sea, well looking at it at least. There is something magical and breathtaking about it and of course it is home to some of the most wondrous creatures and plants.I love a good coastal theme too so it was on natural to use the ocean and its ┬ácontents as a …

…It’s Windy

…It’s Windy

Happy June everybody! That’s right, it’s June and it feels a lot like winter. To celebrate this wonderful fact (I’m not being sarcastic…I swear…*ahem*) here is a very British June inspired artwork/sketch…   This bird seems happy enough to be wearing a scarf at this time of year…I’m not sure I am!

Growth [New Artwork]

Growth [New Artwork]

      I’ve been sketching a lot lately, and I’ve created a rather strange drawing that I’ve aptly (in my opinion!) titled; Growth. Of course, it is just a sketch at the moment but I’m hoping to refine it and create a fairly large drawing from it. But for now let me introduce you …
