    Portraits at the V&A

    There’s a sort of catch-22 when it comes to social media. It can be incredibly rewarding in terms of getting our work out there and making meaningful connections with people. But it is also a little (very) distracting. However, when I do invest in time to write social media posts, I’m often pleasantly surprised by the connections and feedback I gain as a result.

    Recently, I had some portraits taken at the Victoria & Albert Museum. I’m so pleased to share some of my favourites here.

    I’ve been using Moleskine notebooks for quick sketches. The pages are an off-white colour, quite thin and smooth.

    I used a small A5 sketchbook for this exhibition visit. Nowadays, I tend to take photographs at the site and do my drawings at home.

    It was so nice to come out of my dark winter garments into bright spring clothes. Loved wearing this red Minnie Mouse -esque blouse.
