Creating Beneath the Canopy

At the start of this year I was asked to write a creative piece for the Bloom in Doom Magazine. Which focuses on positive and solution-based environmental journalism. I was so excited about being asked and wrote about creating beneath the canopy through the seasons, to inspire others to have a go. It is my…

Painting with Snowflakes

Happy New Year everyone, hoping you have a year full of exciting creative adventures. Take little steps and focus on the little things in nature, it’s definitely helping me right now.

Leaf Printing

I’ve been out in the sunshine sat beneath a Scots Pine tree printing with leaves. Before going out I created a folding map, with rain-painting postcards for the covers, before venturing outside to create in nature. I thought it would be a day for painting shadows of plants in the sunshine, but it was too…

Sketching with an Ancient Tree

I’ve been itching to sketch this fabulous tree, whilst it sketched with me. So today, with my rucksack, out of the door I went to spend some time with this ancient tree. First, I set the materials up so the tree could sketch. Then, with my Seawhite of Brighton Pocket Concertina, I created a sketch…
