My on-line diary began in the 1990's from my studio in the North of England. After a lapse of ten years, I resumed posting from my present studio on the Caribbean island of Dominica.

From the far beginning, the intention has been to give an insight into my working methods, and to share the triumphs, trials and tribulations of work-in-progress.

My diary pages are followed by thousands of artists, art students and art lovers in over 50 countries.

Against all odds…

A week ago, I mentioned the impossibility of keeping a two-year-old still.  Well, against all odds, here she is sat (for two seconds) on her mother’s knee. 

In my mind's eye, this is the first step towards a sculpture on the same theme: the heads of mother and child nestled together.  For that step, if it ever materialises, there will be no need for my sitter to stay still…well, at least not for more than two seconds.  As a sculptor, I can work from a glance and a measurement at a time.  The only thing is - it takes time.

Thank you Jillian and Jaylah, hope you enjoy your portrait.
