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 8–10 days of work, starting with the research. So far I’ve completed eleven, with Norfolk as number twelve, and there are tons more in planning.
Norfolk is finally complete! Below are the stages of the design and the final version, plus a wee video showing the pen and ink work. This has taken me about nine days in total and features Norwich, The Norfolk broads, Blakeney Point, Cromer, Thetford Forest, and a wealth of other places. After this I will be doing Dorset, East Yorkshire, Wiltshire, The Lakes, Kent, Warwickshire and a long list of others. My aim is to complete all the counties of the UK eventually.

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.
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.
