Catch up! (Commissions/FADD)

 Late 2016 – January 2017
Over the past few months I’ve been enjoying drawing and painting. Most of these are commissions. They help to develop my skills, since I haven’t done much study drawing/painting since 2013. I’m now looking to exercise my skills at drawing people, as I used to love it at University.

Fun A Day Dundee 2017
Fun A Day Dundee has been brilliant so far. The goal of finding something fun/ enjoyable (and especially creative) to do every day makes January so much better.
