| SEEKER |
I'm starting a new series of experiments. I was reading something the other day by Austin Kleon, one of my favorite authors on creativity, and he was writing about creating numerous amounts of work. He recommends churning ...
What do you have in your workspace? I'm so intrigued by the things people, especially artists, have in their creative spaces. The space where we work, I find, is so important because I think it's like an expression of what's ...
|WONDER|
Sometimes I think I have lost all my naivety and innocence to the "real world". I used to think I was weak for being naive but I'm on a path now to embrace my naivety. It's part of who ...
| CREATIVE RECOVERY |
Being a creative can at times be a lonely, soul testing journey. I believe the key is connection and sharing. So guess what? I shared. And I shared all of it. If you want to know ...
Been doing these little black and white minis as a kind of colour study. Now, I know you're thinking "it's black and white?" but black and white are colours too. Colour is based on light and black and white are ...
Indigo splashes. Kind of makes me think of rainy days and drizzly afternoons spent happily making art. Thats what weekends are all about. .

Does anybody else keep inspiring/beautiful objects on their desk or workspace? I have been thinking that it would be a great idea to surround the place I work in with things I think are beautiful or meaningful. Like these crystals, ...
Sometimes the experiments pay off. I love how these accidentally became a set. I wasn't even trying but isn't that when the best things happen? Hope your'e all having a great week!

| REVEAL |
Been playing with some geometric elements with this one. I still think I prefer the stencil feel that masking tape produces. I sometimes forget what's under the tape and it's like a nice little surprise when I ...
| IDEATE |
Finished this one up today. Tentatively exploring new ideas with masking tape. The creative process can be so different for everyone cant it? I'll be working on a piece and suddenly without warning I'll have an idea. ...
| G H O S T |
I have always loved the idea of masking off parts of my work and adding elements in this way. It gives me such a sense of freedom and produces really natural marks. I ...
Working on this new baby 💜 got a lovely grey and black wash going on and adding some gold detail work. New gold pen needs a working out!

| PURITY |
So been giving this one a bit more attention today. Added some detail in gold. Been a while since I've used the gold. Recently been obsessed with the purity of certain things like metals and minerals. I ...
Hey so after my little break from the instagram world I've got myself back into the studio and creating. And it feels better than ever. I can't stress how taking a break to recharge is so important for creatives. It ...
I'M BAAACKK! Ok so after a lovely nice rest I'm feeling all inspired and ready for the next creative wave. The #100dayproject was amazing is all I can say but you definitely have to pace yourself. SO for those of ...
100/100 | CLOSURE |
Well I made it. I'm so happy to say that I did it! 100 days of making was such a great challenge and taught me so much about myself and my creativity. I've met so many ...
99/100 | SUSPEND |
This one reminds me of a partially submerged iceberg. Just floating along in misty waters to nowhere.

98/100 | CHOICES |
Thinking about the choices we consciously make today. Never have I felt so much conviction as I do today about the people we choose to have in our lives. We have so much work to do ...
97/100 | FLOW |
I love the fluidity of this one. When all the pieces just fall into place nothing can really describe that feeling. Perfect flow.

96/100 | LANDSCAPE |
These lines remind me of isotope lines on a map. Or a mountain at sunrise, warming rays of light washing over it.

95/100 | IMPRESSIONS |
I was going to give up on this one. Thought it was too weirdly composed and the lines were too complex but actually in the end I think it's worked ok. Layering is something I'm really ...
94/100 | GEOMETRY |
Loving these lines. Gives it such a bold feel I think. I've always been quite a hand drawn organic line type but now I think I'm going to bring in some hard edges. It makes such ...
92/100 | BARRIERS | Close up of an earlier one I posted. Can't believe how much I've progressed with my art in this challenge. So glad I did it! Hope all the other artists out there have broken through and ...
91/100 | IMAGINE |
Added a few more details to this one. I'm starting to think my work is looking like amoebas! Little creatures of my imagination that creep and crawl onto the page.

It's all in the details. Fine black pen lines and dots added to the ink wash below.

89/100 | INFLUENCES |
Does anybody else's creative life get influenced by what they are reading? I never would have thought my booklist would have an effect on my art. I'm reading The fourteenth letter by Claire Evans and it's ...
88/100 | SEEDS |
Keep on keeping on. Simple as that really. I remember someone telling me to never be too quick to dig up the seeds of a new idea too soon. Leave it covered to give them time ...
