A month or so ago, a writer friend of mine started a 100 Days of Writing project. She pledged to write, no matter what, each day for 100 days and post on social media when she had done. As I saw her regular posts, I realised that I needed an incentive to get drawing eachContinue reading “New Project – #100DaysOfDrawing”

Looking back at 2020 (& The Carmelite Prize)

2020 is a year no-one saw coming. It was a year we all had to learn to adapt to new ways of working, communicating and living out our lives. No one foresaw masks, lockdowns, panic buying (loo roll and flour…), closed pubs and extensive travel restrictions at the beginning of 2020. For me, the yearContinue reading “Looking back at 2020 (& The Carmelite Prize)”
