Feature in Waitrose Food Magazine!

Finally, it’s here! My drawing is featured in this month’s (November) Waitrose Food Magazine. It is the first time my work has been included in a published object, in this case a magazine, so it is very exciting for me! You can find the magazine in stores or you can even find it on the…

The Stamps of Edinburgh

During this Strathberry project, I made up some stamps of places in Edinburgh that truly mean something to me. They are a mixture of line drawings and acrylic paint colour blocks. I think it has made something quite characterful but I am still unsure about the line work. Any thoughts?

Somewhere in Northern Scotland
