Blog Award!

I am honoured to have been awarded this Premio Meme award by artists Doreen Cross of and Karie Ann Cooper of

Doreen(Dors) does stunning graphite works and Karie Anne impresses with detailed animal and wildlife works in coloured pencil on drafting film. Take a peek at their blogs!

A requirement of this award is that I list 7 things about myself so here we go:

  1. I love the smell of new books and different paper textures.

  2. I love reading! (Mainly crime fiction and sailing biographies)

  3. I love the way a drawing begins flat (2D) and comes to life like a sculpture almost (3D)!

  4. I love my Nikon SLR camera which I purchased last year. I did a photography course to learn how to use it properly. If the house burned down apart from people and my pet Frisky my camera is what I would grab!!

  5. I love sailing-both cruising and racing. I have sailed since I was 15 years old.

  6. I like to keep fit by running and swimming.

  7. I love outdoor activities, space and freedom. Totally Sagittarian!!

This award now must be passed on to 7 others so here we go; Karie-Ann Cooper and Doreen Cross should be listed here but since they gave the award to me I don't want to start a ping-pong game!!

All of the artists below do beautiful work which inspires me and they have encouraged me in the past!!

  1. Grahame N Butler for his wonderful Graphite works.

  2. Laura Hardie her stunning mastery of coloured pencil and graphite. Laura gave me alot of help and encouragement with my first graphite!

  3. Debra Jones Her watercolour dogs a day are amazing.

  4. Melanie Phillips I love Mels oils.

  5. Heather Page for her wonderful graphite works!

  6. Gary Keiming Gary does stunning landscpes. I love his use of colour and I love his skies.
