In addition to writing, I also create original artwork, mostly graphite sketches, chalk pastel drawings, and watercolour paintings. I do some decorative embroidery as well, but that takes for-bloody-ever to finish, so I don’t have much.
I started drawing as a kid and developed a pretty good sense for human faces, so a lot of my work up until the last few years has been pictures of people, real or imaginary. Watercolour painting is a more recent medium for me, but landscapes and animals have become some of my new favourite subjects.
