Sunday studio scenes….
Some of these are off to new homes now but it’s always nice to look around and be surrounded by colour.
I’m off to full day of kids sport so I’ll be turning up for another sketch later tonight. But it’s school break next week and I’m looking forward to some beach painting coming up.

“He’s just a boy.
Pretending to be a wolf.
Pretending to be a king.” - Where the Wild Things Are
There is no dream you shouldn’t follow.
Even if you fall short,
you will always be proud that you did it anyway.
"I've been drawing as long as I can remember. I think all children draw as soon as they figure out the thumb and can grab crayons. The only difference with people like myself is that we never stopped drawing. Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the 'creative bug' is just a wee voice telling you, 'I'd like my crayons back, please.' -HM
👑So, the studio has been a chaotic mess. It’s great. When I enter, I’m in wonderland - anything is possible. I walk in, turn on my music and the child puts on her wolf costume and crown and comes out to play.
I’m not here to be anyone’s darling. I’m not here to be the best painter that ever lived.
✨I’m here to show you the things that make my heart beat.
Whether you’re writing poetry, painting, dancing, singing - all artists have the same job: manufacture experience, put a proscenium around it ,shoot it back into the world to make people feel more alive.
Art brings us back into ourselves by making us look through someone else’s eyes.
I firmly believe art can restore our humanity when it’s needed most.
…and not that highland cow poster you bought at Target. ✌🏻
