This is Salome from Sktchy drawn with Bic 4-colour ballpoint pens. I don’t often draw full body portraits but occasionally an image will catch my attention and I want to draw it. In this case it was the great posture – it was so interesting and I love drawing foreshortening so I wanted to try to capture it.
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.
