I am an artist living in the rainforest on the east coast of Australia.
This is my second version of this drawing. If anyone has an opinion on which version they like better, I would love to hear it. (Sorry, you have to go back several pages of my uploads to see it.)
I am loving sketching when I am out and about. It is very different than working in my studio - and gives me ideas for my imaginary drawings.
This was inspired by one of @JunkyardSam's drawings. I loved his linked islands and wanted to do my version. Thankyou Junkyard Sam for your inspiration. It is good fun to try on someone else’s outlook.
An experiment to see if I could represent decay using line. I learned a lot.
Day 7 of inktober2020 and the prompt is Fancy (referring to his hat). I like this pen and ink approach better than most of my earlier inktober drawings. I prefer the teeny tiny scratchings to marker.
Nick insists on taking his special hat with him.
Trying out different approaches with my fountain pen.
I recently finished this sketch of an interesting house in a town about an hour away. I was fascinated by all that was going on.
My family used to go to the same cabins at Netart’s Bay every year for a week at the beach. A happy memory.
This is the full spread in my moleskine of Return of the Polar Bear. It is after Pieter Bruegel the Elder, an artist from the 16th century, with my own changes.
It is day 14 of inktober2020 and I couldn't resist the prompt Armor.
Another house that I found interesting, this one is across from the library in my local town. I love drawing all the vegetation detail - how the buildings decay and are slowly taken over by plants.
This started out with an interest in drawing ferns and foliage, then surprised me by becoming a self portrait.
Fountain pen in sketchbook
I love drawing old houses. I started this sitting in my car and later finished drawing the details in while in my studio.
Just a house I found interesting in the nearest town.
An angel, a nature spirit of great power - whichever way of describing her that you are comfortable with. She is a force in protecting all of nature.
While visiting a friend, I took some time to draw his cabin.
The ink drops were unintentional. The hazards of using a fountain pen.
For the past years I have been mainly painting in acrylic. But since my last show I have taken this time to return to my love of drawing and am mostly experimenting. I am using fountain pen for the first time and really enjoying it.

A second go at my drawing 'Animal Parade'. I wanted to try a different approach, a bit darker.
