Each year we head to the Outer Isles for a family holiday. Whatever the weather we always have the best of times, and this year was no exception. Most days were spent on the beach, with my husband and girls investigating rock pools, the dog going mad in the sand and me soaking up as much of it as I can.


I sketch and photograph whenever possible whilst I’m on North Uist. It’s my way of unwinding. There is so much to inspire and motivate – the colours and textures of the sea, shore, lochs and hills. Everywhere you look there’s something…

I also finally remembered to bring some pots with me to shoot amongst the landscape that inspired them…

    • Thank you so much Claudia! I know, I somehow seem to have less and less time for perusing other people’s blogs 😕 This wonderful holiday now seems a lifetime ago. Luckily I have a week off in a fortnight’s time to recharge my batteries before I head to London for my first show there. It’s causing me a certain amount of stress as I need to have everything prepared before we go, but I am SO looking forward to just doing nothing. I really hope you are well. When I do have time I love catching up with what you’ve been up to. Your paintings always make me smile. X
