While I am eager and most excited to complete the final stages of VIZAĜO, a slight problem with a broken finger has forced me to be patient for a few weeks, something I struggle with on the best of days… Yet attempting to clamber up rocks on a bushwalk was so hilariously silly that I’m just going to […]
I’ve made a start on a new deck of cards, which I’m hoping to share with you as it evolves … A design all about faces and colour, where my aim is to create a fully custom, playable and surreally happy deck of cards.
Welcome to the final segment of Water Lines – Pen & ink; a post series showing my work from a group exhibition in December. Today, I want to introduce you to the Garnet Hill – a four masted steel barque with a (to me) special history.
Welcome to part three of Water Lines – Pen & ink – a virtual tour of artworks I recently showed in a group exhibition. Meet the Orcas, the sailors up the mast rounding Cape Horn, and of course, no ship is fully crewed without a cat at the helm …

My last post was all about the beginnings of a new body of work; oil paintings and ink drawings for an exhibition about Water… A lot has happened since then :) Moving house (somewhat suddenly) in the middle of the usual end-of-year rush, while also completing work for the Water Lines exhibition was (in hindsight) an interesting study in […]
Music is always inspiring, as are those who perform it so brilliantly… My friend Paul is an absolute star on the harmonica; he plays and sings across the musical genres, exuding enjoyment and love of music. He recently had a ‘big’ birthday (along with a party to write home about), and I did this drawing, wanting to capture some […]
Time for some more ink drawings :) Drawings from the James Craig I want to do more detailed drawings of this beautiful ship … these sketches are, for me, the perfect way to play around with pen strokes, while getting more of a feel for the intricate detail found in every nook and cranny… Pen […]
On the weekend I spent the day with the family on board a tall ship; it was a wonderful experience given to us by lovely parents :) The James Craig is the only tall ship in the world (from the late 1800s) that regularly sails with passengers and her volunteer crew; and it was ever so special to […]
