I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Catalonian region of Spain and thought I would share some the most beautiful and interesting sights my partner and I experienced there.


We based our stay in the medieval city of Girona - a stunning warren of cobbled streets, majestic churches and endless stairways.

We also visited Barcelona to take in the sights of Antoni Gaudi's famous works, including La Sagrada Família and Casa Batlló.

Venturing up to Figueres we visited the insane and thought provoking Dalí Theatre Museum.

Such an amazing and inspiring trip, I'd definitely recommend a visit to this region of Spain.


Now it's back to work with so many projects I want to complete and share over the coming months - keep an eye out!

I created a portrait of a friends beloved sausage dog for her 21st birthday and thought I would share the process here - it's something I always find really interesting to see with other artists.



This particular piece also included a bee to reflect the friends love of the insect and adds an extra personal element.


I would love to create more pet illustrations - message me if you're interested!

For my first blog post I thought I would give you a little glimpse into the ideas that are whirling around my head at the moment and the work I'm doing to try and transfer them into illustrations.

Illustrated chart done last year identifying the different types of sea turtles

I definitely feel that I haven't quite finished illustrating sea turtles - they're such majestic, ancient creatures that are under a huge threat from human activities and I really want to explore this further.


Initial concept drawings - hand drawn (left) and digital (right)

My current idea explores the effect of plastic on both our marine life and our planet. I'm doing lots of little sketches and drawings to work out all areas of composition, colour and technique.

Sample piece trying to work out colour and technique

It's all still a work in progress - I'll keep you posted on how it all goes.


Thanks for stopping by!
