Jan- March 2020

A collection of art and projects I’ve been working on over the beginning of 2020 (before covid-19 lockdown.)

Monty portrait on black paper with coloured and pastel pencils. I really enjoyed working on this portrait, was my first time drawing on a dark background (at least for a really long time) so it was an enjoyable change.

Fun A Day Dundee 2020: I will have a blog post following this one detailing the running’s of FADD2020 this year, but here’s a wee selection of what I made when I took part. I created a variety of artwork that was inspired by my daily life – what I was watching, what comforts me, and doodles which do ease my mind and help me think. Here’s a small selection of what I did. I am still to gather all the stuff I made (it’s taken forever as it was just put behind me in midst of everything going on. There a variety of textile, drawing, painting, and mixed media. Something to look forward to.)

One of my amazing clients send me a picture of her collection of mini portraits I painted of her cats with their photos!

Stag drawing – although I do quite like the half way point of this drawing, so will probably revisit it and do a few versions.

Just before shut down, I sold some of my work at a local fundraiser. Was probably the last social gathering of that volume I attended. Was really nice speaking to people about my practice.

A workshop I went to with Hannah Wingfield (fellow FADD team member.) Run by @properpads on Instagram at Murton Trust in Forfar. It was a great morning getting back into sewing and working with fabric again.
