I started this portrait of Maju on my iPad on the train on Tuesday and finally got around to finishing it today. I love the flexibility of iPad drawing – it’s so easy to start a drawing on one day, leave it part way through, pick it up again some days later and just carry on from where I left off. I don’t generally do this with sketchbook drawing but my iPad goes everywhere with me and so I often have a WIP (work in progress) on 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.
