A sketchbook drawing experimenting with a series looking at a story of a group of people. This is a bit vague at the moment but I wanted to try out a few ideas. I have to say the character's faces are not my favourite so I will definitely be working on those- i think they look a bit too much like children's storybook characters. Any works that i'm happy with will, of course, be worked into an embroidery. Oh and this has a border design as well that i've managed to cut off in the process of photographing- sometimes you would not believe that I studied photography at art school!

Animals in clothing is always a winner-right? We have set up a bird feeder in our garden which my two year old girl is crazy about so i've been chatting a lot about birds lately. Anyway I felt inspired to draw a portrait of the faithful blackbird that appears in our garden every morning for breakfast (I might also do one of the squirrel family who have taken over the garden as well at some point).

My little girl picks up random flowers, sticks, pebbles and any other 'treasures' that she finds when we're out. We constantly have flowers sitting in bottles around the house so I decided to draw one for her and combine it with a bit of pattern.
