5 Minute Obsession – Today is a Gift

A couple of months ago I decided to listen to a new Spotify playlist. It is called Lo Fi Beats, and I played it in the background while I was sketching one weekend afternoon. I rememeber about an hour in in, I told Martin “I keep listening to this playlist and I don’t even think I like it. I just can’t stop listening” Lo Fi…

A week of OOTDs

One of my favourite hashtags to follow on Instagram is the #ootd (outfit of the day). I avoid the real life selfies and focus on the awesome illustrations people do of their own outfits. I always think they would be so fun to do – if only I was fashionable! My fashion sense could be summed up in two words: functional and comfortable.  90% of…

The Lost Urban Sketches

A few years ago I was lucky enough to live in Spain, which has since become one of my most favourite places ever. I lived and worked in Barcelona as an assistant English teacher, as part of a program assisting the English teachers, taking your own classes and in return living with a family for the year for free. I did this for two years…

Endangered Inktober Zine

Why a Zine? I completed my first zine!  I am running my first marathon in April for the WWF and I need to raise £500. This might not seem like a lot of money to someone who has a large family, a big group of friends and 40 co-workers, but that isn’t my case! I also hate asking people for money – even if it’s…

Mini Masterpieces – MARK ROTHKO

I have an idea to paint mini masterpieces for a while, and I’m starting with American artist Mark Rothko. You know those tiny little canvas on easels you can buy in craft fairs? I got one for a present last Christmas and ever since then I’ve had the idea to paint little copies of my favourite paintings – or to even learn about new artists….

2019 Art Goals!

2019 is here and so are some new art goals. I love the start of a new year and thought it was the perfect opportunity to create a new avatar and think about my art goals for 2019. Last year I didn’t make any goals and got a bit lost and unfocused at time. I tried waaay to many personal monthly challenges, which all failed…
