Artist in residence at St Johns, Wimborne during Environment Week.


Working with things from Dorset Scrap Store the children and me
created a flower scene by weaving it through the fence in the school grounds.
A great way of making use of wasted materials!

Bridget sent me a note too.


A big thank you for the fabulous pastel portrait of our 3 labradors. It was a fantastic birthday surprise for my partner - he was thrilled, and the look on his face made the sneaking around and secrecy worthwhile! And thank you again for being so patient trying to photograph 3 crazy dogs who just wanted to play! All 3 dogs are such different characters and you've managed to capture their individual personalities perfectly - there's no doubting that's our girls. The picture has pride of place alongside the beautiful pastel you did of my Sheltie 2 years ago. Thanks again for the beautiful picture, and I'll be in touch again as we've got a new puppy arriving shortly!!!
 
Thanks Bridget!

Golden retrievers in pastel

These two lovely Golden Retrievers are a good looking pair to draw as a pastel portrait . I've a little more to do but I think they are nearly there.
