The Sketchacrosstheworld Project came about in 2019 through wanting to encourage folk to sketch outdoors and connect with nature. A chance to experience creativity whatever the weather. Exploring creativity outdoors introduces an inspiring, free -flowing experience.

The richness I achieve comes from nature, the source of my inspiration.

In need of some inspiration? Take a wander over to my blog and see if my creative adventures inspire you. You could capture the essence of where you are, through drawing shapes, lines and adding colour you are drawn to, or painting with plants you find around you. Go for a walk and collect nature’s treasures to create LandArt or wander up on a hill to paint with the wind. Whatever you chose to have a go with, it might be your first attempt outside but the most important thing enjoy your adventure.

To look, to see, to understand, to capture – however imperfectly – is to be part of the land in a way like no other.
