My personal sketchbooks are a joy to make and an inspiration to my work. Over the summer months I enjoyed working in my wildflower garden and nearby woods in every kind of lighting condition from full sun to stormy weather. My tools are simple: a basic palette of primary colours plus white gouache and a selection of oil pastels, crayons, inks, charcoal and pencils. Not only do I love painting and drawing in nature but these small pieces directly inform my writing and give me ideas for larger scale artworks.
A number of these sketchbook studies are available as high quality giclée art prints in my Shop as well as several original paintings that were inspired by these sketchbook pages.
