Welcome!

Please join me as I explore my world through drawing and painting in all the colours of the rainbow. I love rainbows. I collect them (ask my family). Maybe it’s because rainbows show such beauty and promise after a drenching downpour. That says a lot.

Life isn’t always easy, but it has taught me a lot – especially to appreciate the small joys around me. Sitting and sketching the detail in front of me takes me away from my worries and lets me focus on the moment. Pulling out my watercolours and sploshing a page with hot pinks, purples, limes and yellows brightens my day – literally. I hope my work brings joy to you too.

I returned to Mark Denver Antiques in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy today to draw the other side of the street.  I especially wanted to capture Rustica where I picked up some yummy sandwiches yesterday on my way home, and the Fitzroy Nursery, covered in wisteria. I needed a bike to anchor the left of my sketch and @diannecolk kindly moved hers to pose for me. It gave me a chance to combine my favourite leaf green and cobalt turquoise :) #brunswickstreetsketchography #brunswickstreetfitzroy #brunswickstreet #usk #melbourneurbansketchers #urbansketchers #cityofyarra #streetscape #melbourne #fitzroy #watercolour

Outside Mark Denver in BrunswickStreet, Fitzroy - a shop full of curiosities that I would love to sketch inside, but the window will have to do. Sadly, due to the pandemic people can only shop through their website which couldn't possibly replicate seeing these vintage curiosities in real life. #brunswickstreetsketchography #brunswickstreetfitzroy #fitzroy #brunswickstreet #cityofyarra #melbourneurbansketchers #usk #urbansketchers #sketch #bockingford

My rainbow boots may be getting a bit scratched, but they are firmly planted back in Brunswick Street as I continue drawing it brick by brick. It has just been wonderful to leave home for something other than exercise- I could never draw on the run like some others can! #brunswickstreetsketchography

This was a three morning effort at the corner of Westgarth and Brunswick Streets. People came and went from the mosaic seat in front of me. I wanted to be able to show the times we are living in, so thank you to the masked pair who may or may not have noticed they were being drawn. Not one car parked in my view on any of the mornings which tells a story of its own in this usually busy street. #brunswickstreetsketchography #brunswickstreetfitzroy #fitzroy #brunswickstreet #cityofyarra #usk #melbourneurbansketchers #urbansketchers #streetscape #melbourne #urbansketch #watercoloursketch #bockingford
