Creative, artistic, a bit quirky to be honest. There are always 3 or 4 ideas on the go at any one time, and lots more in my head. Inklings was something which started about a year ago.
The intricately detailed British Counties designs have been a big part of my life in the last year, and each one is very time consuming, involving 7–8 days of work, starting with the research. So far I’ve completed ten, with Derbyshire as the most recent one, and there are tons more in planning.
Below are the draft sketches for Suffolk, featuring Framlingham, Sutton Hoo, Bury St. Edmunds, and a wealth of other places. After this I will be doing the Isle of Wight, Dorset, Wiltshire, The Lakes, Aberdeenshire and a long list of others. My aim is to complete all the counties of the UK eventually.
Tea towels and tote shoppers are now available, more to follow. Check out my merchandise pages here.
I’m grateful to the amazing Facebook page Not on Amazon – a really brilliant portal where tons of creative people were are able to showcase their amazing products.
I’m over the moon to be have my designs and merchandise on show at my lovely local café in Thirsk Teatime Yorkshire where you can watch the world go by and get the best coffee and home made cakes around!
So this is me! Sketching and in one of my favourite places, Whitby, on the bracing North Yorkshire coast, always happy there, come rain, wind, or the odd tornado.
