Courses with the Royal Drawing School

13 Jun 2020

I’ve just started intense two courses with the Royal Drawing School via Zoom. It works brilliantly and is so much more accessible than trekking up to London. The courses are really helping me push my work into the area of imagination when it comes to more figurative work.

New series of chemo drawings and diary work

13 May 2020

I’ve started on series 2 of my chemo drawings and started a diary which will probably have occasional entries. I had a break in treatment due to covid-19 so relieved to have started again.

Commemorative quilt and Dwell Time

9 May 2020


I was delighted to be invited to contribute to a ‘Digital Quilt’ made up of individual artworks to commemorate the lives of former MA Fine Art Course Director Joanna Greenhill and former Senior Lecturer Dr Kate Love at Central St Martins, both of whom have recently passed away.


One of my chemo day drawings is included on page 11 of edition 2 of Dwell Time: Dwell Time is a free publication and you can buy postage to have a copy delivered to you.

Dwell Time is an award winning, not-for-profit publication reflecting on mental wellbeing, established in 2018 by Alice Bradshaw, Vanessa Haley and Lenny Szrama.

Dwell time: The time a train spends at a scheduled stop without moving. Typically, this time is spent boarding or alighting passengers, but it may also be spent waiting for traffic ahead to clear, or idling time in order to get back on schedule.

Isolation and lockdown

14 Apr 2020

Still in isolation obviously and only allowed to go into the garden. I am waiting anxiously to see what treatment I am offered when I have my telephone consultation with the oncologist at the end of the month.

In the meantime I am working on some watercolours when the weather is good enough and also some drawings and prints.
