Colourful Paintings Jan – Jul 2021

Each new year brings a time of creativeness for me. This is because of Fun A Day Dundee. Running the project involves connecting, supporting, commenting, and viewing artistic and fun projects by the public, so I’m always immersed in a variety of creativity. If I’m lucky, I’ll also have time to spend on my own…

Christmas 20 Drawings

Some drawings from the end of 2020. Pet portraits using pencil and pastel pencil. I think pencil work is my favourite for animals! Couple of illustrations

FADD 2021

What a joy it is being part of Fun A Day Dundee, especially at the helm where I have the opportunity to work with so many creative people who are active artists, and those who would label themselves as casual creators. Fun A Day Dundee welcomes anyone and everyone to get creative and embrace activities,…

Inktober 2020

I’ve made an attempt to take part in Inktober in previous years, but I hadn’t found a subject, pen or style that I was happy to play with each day. This year I focused on a character that I enjoy drawing each year. Through various sketches and doodles, I had a lot of fun and…

Summer 2020

Looking back over summer 2020 lockdown… I started exploring with shape, colour and pattern. This was mostly influenced from the creative prompts my fellow Fun A Day Team members came up with for over lockdown. First layer was acrylic paint, then I’d use pen on top for details. Really enjoyed playing with this new work,…

Maggie’s Online Market & May-June Drawings

The Makers for Maggie’s Market was planned before the lockdown happened, and organiser; Sophie Siegel (Candle Bothy) did a tremendous job at running it online, ensuring that money was still raised for the charity Maggie’s Dundee, while local businesses received support at the same time. I was amazed by how well this online market worked….

April- May Development (Studio)

With lock down in progress, after some time of going through similar activities and motions as many others, I was able to relax into a new routine and spend a lot of time in my home studio (feeling lucky having it at home!) I’ve gone back to developing ideas and interests within a sketchbook every…

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…
