I’m so glad I have drawing, reading and gaming to distract me from Coronavirus. These three activities, along with the ridiculous amount of time I spend on social media, keep me busy. But drawing is, without a doubt, the most absorbing. I’m in a different place when I’m drawing, lost to the world, and I don’t really hear or notice anything that’s happening around me. I’m just focused on the face in front of me and what’s happening at the end of my brush, pen or pencil.

This is a portrait of Sktchy muse Majo drawn in my Midori Cotton sketchbook with 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.
