Sktchy muse Tiffanie has the kind of face I love to draw. Perfect pale skin that reflects light beautifully. Straight hair – for so long hair was my nightmare to draw and I still find straight dark hair so soothing to draw because it’s so much more straightforward than any other kind. And well defined bone structure that’s easy for me to capture. I could happily draw her every day for the rest of my life.

I drew this portrait in my Midori Cotton sketchbook with a Unipin fineliner, Copic markers and Prismacolor coloured pencils.

I love drawing things. These days I am rarely found without a pen, pencil or stylus in my hands. In my working life I spend a lot of time in meetings and classrooms, reading papers and strategies, so my home life provides a creative antidote to all that! I also have chronic pain, lots of it. I have scoliosis, fibromyalgia and CRPS, so my life is a balancing act, trying to balance work, which make me feel part of the real world, with pain, which is ever present, and art, which soothes my pain.
