A patchwork gallery of my paintings and illustrations 'The Crow's Treasures' Pen and Ink on Paper - 2016 This crow jumped quite fiercely into being, as I felt drawn to pick up a bird watching book and sketch from it one evening. The carrion crow that made its way out is quite a thing of mischief I think, carrying (stealing?) treasures in its beak. It could be about to take off but the leaves sprouting out of the book seem to be growing around the crow, so maybe he's been there for longer than we think. I had a wonderful couple of days in my lovely friend's cabin to finish this off. Escaping the city and finding myself amongst gorgeous woodland just as spring was a-waking was glorious. I could see the snow-capped peaks of Hellvellen out of the window, and Ullswater lake lapped deliciously close to the cabin. Juggling making art with motherhood can be an interesting trip, but actually my daughter came along on this trip, and has become so entranced with reading that we immersed ourselves in our own creative worlds -side by side.
