I have been neglecting my website terribly this year. I have no excuses for this other than being busy and focussed on making new work. Although things have been very far from normal across the globe for the last few months, the Covid-19 crisis has not hugely affected my everyday life. I work from home, by myself, and so it’s mostly been a more intense version of that for me. With a lovely online community of artists for company I have actually been very productive and consider myself incredibly lucky to have the refuge of art to take me out of myself and act as a form of meditation.

I have really neglected my website this year, and have quite a sizeable backlog of work to post. I’ve been so focussed on painting that I struggle to find time for anything else. In many ways that’s a good thing, I’m energised by my work and am constantly pushing my skillset to experiment and learn. I acknowledge now though that I need to work smarter.

I’ve been trying to sketch most days this year (I can’t believe it’s nearly June already). Here’s a selection of my little drawings from January. Since then I’ve started several different sketchbooks for watercolour, gouache and oil paint. Experimentation with style, media and subject is my current focus, and beyond that I’ll see what evolves. Allowing myself this time to try different things has certainly reawakened my motivation and I feel more inspired than I have for a while.
