One of my new years resolutions is to continue doing a sketch a day in my diary…hoping this year they will be less covid lockdown related more painting and climate action related!
Way way back in BC time (Before Corona) my friend Elly visited us with her daughter Sophie who is only five days older than Peach. I’ve been meaning to draw this cartoon of the visit ever since.
I’ve updated my website! I hope you like it. There is a new look homepage, my art gallery has been updated and there are prices and contact information if you would like to buy any of my acrylic paintings or watercolours. I’ve also updated my commissions page and if you have any cartoon requests pleaseContinue reading “Updated website!”
In September 2018 we demolished our old asbestos ridden garage and turned it into a new half bikes & gardening stuff storage space half art studio for myself and our daughters.

At the moment I have no idea how long I have before one of us gets sick, someone in our bubble gets sick and we have to quarantine, or Belgium goes into full on lockdown mode again and we have no more help with childcare.
My new year’s resolution was to draw a sketch a day in my diary of something that had happened during that day. During lockdown it was one of the few things that helped to keep me sane, and it’s been a really nice way of recording our second daughters progress.
