Apparently plaited hairstyles are going to be quite the thing for Autumn this year. If anyone has any tips on how to carry this off without looking like a Swiss goat-girl or a singing nun, please pass them my way...

Drawing (in)

Another little warm up drawing from my sketchbook. I know it's still August, but my mind has started creeping, just a little, towards autumn... Towards coats and boots and things made with apples.

Tom and Lucy

One of my recent time-sensitive commissions, a portrait for a lovely couple who got married this weekend. (And whose wedding I'm still recovering from - too much dancing in heels!)

I've been working on a couple of commissions recently that are a bit date-sensitive and can't be posted yet. So instead,  here's a quick warm-up sketch of a young lady with a bunny head. My first sketches of the morning, to wake up my hand and warm up my pen, tend to be anything that's caught my eye recently... in this case an image that popped up on Pinterest.

I'm not sure what this young lady's thinking about, but it certainly seems quite distracting. Possibly she's just created a new website and is hoping people are going to like it...
