My Blog posts are a sneak inside my head, a little insight into my life as a professional artist. Most of these posts begin as thoughts jotted down in the back of a sketchbook as ideas seem to flood in sometimes, a little like paintings.

  1. Escape to Ibiza, September 2022 

    Some thoughts from my trip to Ibiza. This was a 'holiday' but when you're an artist you never really completely switch off. I totally recommend a visit to the Museo de arte Contemporaneo in Ibiza...all about this, some sketchbook pages and more below.


    Clear cobalt, warm salted sea, unknotting all the tensed-up months that passed before. Floating. Escaping. Pausing life’s big rush. Ibiza’s tangle of passions and chill. The steady rolling metamorphosis of the pulsing beat, washed colours interpreted as sound. Bodies blending, not a care who’s watching. Warm brown, sand-blown skin, young, old and carefree, somnolent on the sand. 


    Not looking for or expecting inspiration but it always sneaks up on you. Everywhere there were hastily plastered posters advertising nights of music and abandon, bursts of colour and graphics drawing your eye. They seemed to change daily. Always something new.
