I've been thinking about starting a blog for a while now. My intention is to write primarily about all the creative things I like to do, though I may sometimes just ramble on about whatever comes to mind.
I've decided it's time to spend my time (or at least as much of my time as is practically possible) making and creating useful and/or decorative things, and by means of this blog, telling how I arrive at a finished article.
Drawing in coloured pencil is the thing I love to do most, my real
passion. My style is somewhere around realism/hyperrealism blended with
my own love of vibrant colour and light.
But I also enjoy many other handcrafts - from making one-of-a-kind
jewelry to creating original Celtic knotwork drawings and everything in
I set up a shop on Etsy in October 2011 as a place to sell all the things I make and I thought that this blog might help to show where all those items come from and how they were made. Like I already mentioned, I may get sidetracked from time to time if something else grabs my attention, or just on a whim! I don't pretend to be a brilliant writer, in fact, this is as much an experiment to see if I can write anything any way decent, as it is to elaborate on my experiments in creativity. So, yes, experimental indeed, but I hope you'll bear with me and pop by from time to time for a little read. You're very welcome! :-)
