My drawing of St James’s, Piccadilly, a Wren church which will is due to be renovated within the next couple of years, and so it will undoubtedly be changing!  It was good to explore the site from every angle before finding the best spot which was at the very end of the small garden.  It’s a church so very much in the heart of London that it was tricky to get up close and personal, but exploration of all the nooks and crannies helped! #christopherwren #piccadilly #pencildrawing #londonlife
The lovely piazza on Wyndham Place in Marylebone.  A broad expanse of paved stone where people sit to people-watch and children play hopscotch #penart #sepiadrawing #marylebone #urbansketchers
Working on my new commission of St James’s church, Piccadilly.  Wren’s favourite church in the heart of the West End.  I’m drawing it from the far end of the garden, which is a little oasis today in the sun #artistsupportpledge #pencildrawing #urbandrawing #stjameslondon #pencilonpaper

Achilles, not too sure about moving house!
I found my falconer today as we enter the final 24 hours before moving…I drew him about a month ago from a tapestry in the V&A.  I can’t wait to move and have my own studio! #drawingart #falcon #movingon
Oh dear, playing with watercolour when I’m supposed to be packing up the house but a few minutes doodling a day is keeping me sane (ish!) #artsanity #playing #artistssupportpledge #richmond
