Rotring Rapidograph pen. 6″ x 8″ (15cm x 20cm).
Approx. 15cm x 20cm (6″ x 8″). Rotring Rapidograph pens on cartridge paper with watercolours, metallic inks and paints applied. It’s rather sparkly/glittery … which the camera doesn’t really pick up.

Fun to do something this fiddly and fussy and completely potty!
4″ x 3″. Rotring pens, watercolours, metallic gold paint and pens on Bristol Board.
Just playing really with the Bristol Board; it’s very white and very smooth and will take a bit of a colour wash. The design is very much influenced by early Celtic art and prehistoric rock art, though the hearts have crept in unconsciously. In fact, most of my art is created while in a meditative kind of state, the lines, shapes, textures and colours flow from my unconscious, from my inner being. Perhaps the hearts represent the self-love starting to bloom within me, or maybe the artwork symbolises the start of love being sent out and shared. I’m sticking with the title ‘Growing Love’ for now.
