My display of natural finds.



As it has been a while since I posted here I thought I would post lots of little drawings in one go. This is actually a photograph of one of the little displays at my exhibition last year. I always draw from real natural objects, the cabinet holds some of my little drawings and some objects from my collections.
I wanted people to see the real feathers, shells, seeds, leaves, insects etc which I draw and inspire many of my drawings. So here is a little glimpse into the sort of things I collect, usually from the countryside or beach near to where I live. They are just everyday objects to me , found while I am out and about.
Hope you like it, click to see the bigger picture.

Very sweet (by which I mean intimate and appealing - don't wish to sound patronizing). I particularly like the leaf drawings.
