2020….let’s get started!

It’s taken a wee while for me to get back in gear…shake off the doldrums of the short stormy days and start drawing again, but I’ve got there at last! A new drawing completed, a little home cooking , a little pedalling into town on the trike, wind in my hair and the gloomy winter mood is beginning to go!

They are the largest I’ve done to date and printing them took more than a little effort! It was like printing a giant colouring book just for me, better than a box of chocolates!!

My desk is getting really busy! I’ve been out and about on the trike drawing in the sunshine one day and busy in my studio due to grey rainy weather the next! I’ve had customers getting in touch and markets to plan for – it’s all go!
