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 18 months 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 fifteen, with East Yorkshire as the most recent one, and there are tons more in planning.
My latest – Lancashire – what an extraordinary county! Pop culture, stunning scenery, amazing beaches, piers, Blackpool Tower, Southport, the most famous witch trial in history, heritage, the great outdoors, and … The Beatles! My pencil draft shows work in progress; I hope to complete this in a couple of weeks.
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.
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.
