Hello! :)
Here is what I have been up to for the past couple of weeks. Below are 5 sketches for 5 commissions I have started and will be doing over the next few weeks.

I have also begun the sketches for two different picture books that I will be working on this year. One, we hope to print by July. I have made the entire storyboard and I must say its very exciting to see the flow of a story through pictures. I will talk more about that once the images start to be finished.
I've included a sketch of one of the images above - but can't say much more about the story yet.


  1. I love to see the preparation sketches! Do you have a very clear idea of how the painting will look before you do the sketches, or do you have to redraw them several times before reaching the final design? xx

  2. I love seeing how you begin and then seeing the wonderful painting unfold!

  3. Hi Jessie and Tammie! :)
    The sketches for the canvases are quite spontaneous and often I get them how I want from the start. The sketches for the mandalas take a bit more time to put together because of the many layers but still it's often the first image that comes to mind that I place in the center.

  4. HI Lindy,

    I am soo keen to have one of your story books , please keep me posted on when you are publishing them .

    so excited
