Drawing and photography are central to my practice. Both make pressing - if sometimes fictitious - claims to the capture of lost moments.


Au revoir Albertine

No time for a drawing today, but I did a lot of stuff in the garden, including dead head Albertine...

And saw this little fellow moving towards our front door

and these decorative baubels on an early evening walk


Versions of the same

My life has been so housebound lately that I think I could rename this blog "Versions of the same" or "Things I see around the house" or, why not, "Everyday life at home"!  Possum kept re-adjusting her position just a tiny little bit, but enough to make her pose never quite the same every time I looked up - and meant her body is a particularly silly long furry sausage here.

Bit of a bore

I know I'm a bit of a bore with this garden, but I find the changeover of blooms over the summer, first one  then another – and with each waxing and waning a different overall palette – quite overwhelmingly lovely. And no, I wasn't a clever planner: all happenstance, really.

Not exactly a drawing, but I couldn't bear that last image to be the first thing I saw when I came into my blog, so here is summer...

The pain of others

My husband trying in vain to manage chronic migraine. It's hard to be a bystander of the pain of others, not knowing what to do. In the first spread, I used the pages in vertical orientation for an initial drawing, and then I changed my mind.
