In progress: Self Portrait with Greg, sitting on a lovely batik tablecloth (just in case you were thinking that the pattern on the right was a really nice part of my painting). The details need to be fixed up and then it will be cut out. I am a bit disappointed with it but I am going to put it away for today and go onto something else.
The pencil drawing, before I started painting over it, above. The painting is based on a photo of me which was taken by Alice, aged 10. Thank you very much for your help, Alice!
This blog is both a record of my work and an attempt to contribute to the vast inspiration that thousands of other creative people have given me via the internet.
I worked for many years in the fashion industry, designing prints, textiles and developing products for children. I now work as a freelance illustrator and make a variety of work under my own name. Some of the things that I make can be found in my etsy shop and in galleries and stores around Australia.
