A typical evening in for me after a long day of work, when I finally get a moment of silence and not needing to think. A time when I get to lie down, read some articles and hang out with my cat. I believe it must be Bosley's favorite time of day too.
This image actually took me a lot longer than I thought it would, and I really struggled with trying to get the pose right. I wanted to cut out all the mess ups I made, but I decided to show them anyway. The sketches actually took as long as the final piece once I got into the swing of things.
I think when we see other artists' work, or at least when I do, I always think, "Wow it's so perfect!" But we rarely think about the amount of time and thought that goes into getting that final image. I really wanted to cut out all the mess ups and just forget about all the struggles and sketches I went through, but I decided to show it anyway. Even though I would rather hide the "mess-ups" so my process looks more "perfect" - in reality, it just wasn't so and those sketches is what got me to this final image.
Have you felt like this before? When was a time you struggled through a drawing? Share with me your experiences.

I've had a few people ask me how I make my needle felt creations, so I thought I'd make a little process vid from start to finish.
This is my first video, so I apologize ahead of time for poor quality and lighting.
I hope you enjoy this, and if so please let me know and I'll make more :) And feel free to leave me feedback so I can improve the next video!
Thanks for watching!

Yay for a new website!
I was looking at my site last week and thought that it felt really out of date. A lot has changed since two years ago, and I wanted to update my site to better represent what I've been up to. That also includes trying to blog again, which I haven't really done since graduating from uni in 2012.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I've been really into creating polymer clay and felt creations. I've been super inspired by artists like Creative Rachy and Maqaroon, who have FANTASTIC tutorials on YouTube. I learned most of what I've been doing from them, so be sure to check them out!
I'm hoping to use this blog to share my art projects and a bit of the process/work that goes into my creations.
Thanks all! Please enjoy this piggie eating some hay.
