|Location||Buckingham, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom|
|Introduction||I decided to venture into the world of portraits and caricatures and wanted to record my progress. The abstracts started about 6 months later. I've loved art all my life but discouraged from following an artistic career for "something more sensible." Although I've drawn since leaving school. I decided to go for the dream, whatever it takes,at the beginning of April 2008 I'm addicted to drawing and draw at every available opportunity. Based in Buckingham and I have a lovely husband, Andrew, who supports me on this venture. I'm the mother of 3 so time is very precious, often found burning the midnight oil. Love all things creative but not cute and fluffy. Hate all things domestic! Especially clearing up after my children! I'm a Christian and always think of the story of Martha and Mary if I start to feel bad about the housework. It usually works a treat! Oh yes, and the picture is me, NOT!|
|Interests||Drawing especially portraits and caricatures - hence blog title. I've been experimenting with Abstracts and these are steadily taking over. Love creating scrapbooks about family and other interests. Running although not done much recently due to injury.|
|Favorite Movies||Pirates of the Caribbean - most things with Johnny Depp or Will Smith in. "Indiana Jones" and "Back to the Future" series|
|Favorite Music||Various styles but rock most of all, anything by KATE BUSH, PINK FLOYD, PETER GABRIEL, QUEEN Mika, Elvis Costello, HATE MOR!|
|Favorite Books||Mostly Terry Pratchett. Don't read as much as I'd like to as I tend to get a bit OCD with reading - forgetting food, sleep, school runs! I do not like to put a good book down and if it's not good I don't bother to finish it.|
What would you wear for camouflage if you were hiding in a gingerbread house?
Chocolate dress and lots of Sprinkles!
