My personal sketchbooks are a joy to make and an inspiration to my work. Over the warm months I enjoy working outdoors in every kind of lighting condition from full sun to stormy weather. My tools are simple: a basic palette of primary colours plus white and a selection of oil pastels, acrylic gouache, 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 selection of these sketchbook studies are available as high quality giclée art prints in my Shop. If you’d like to receive updates about my current work, please subscribe to my monthly newsletter. You’ll be first to hear about my art launches, previews, exhibitions and events. If you have a question about my artwork, feel free to email me.
