Welcome to my Sketchbook Silent Auction - a very special opportunity for you to own a unique, truly personal work of art, and help others in the process...
Collage Sketchbook
Artists' sketchbooks are like diaries; personal books where experimentation and exploration happens, thoughts jotted down, random marks made and ephemera stuck in...and mine are no exception... My sketchbooks are part of my daily routine, a gentle start to the creative day, but more than that, they reflect my moods, good or bad...involving words or quotes that have relevance to me, using old work whilst adding fresh details... Normally these sketchbooks sit on my studio shelves, and, from time to time, especially when the muse is missing, I look through them....they are never usually for sale....

However, through personal experience, I know that mental health issues can affect anyone, no matter how outwardly 'strong' they may appear. Although people are becoming more aware of the issue, there is always more that can be done to highlight the subject; that is why I decided to hold this Sketchbook Silent Auction...



Take a peek at the sketchbook....



The auction ran from 1st - 8th November in aid of The Tomorrow Project...and I am pleased to announce that the sketchbook sold and, along with monies raised from some small artworks, I was able to donate £400 to the charity.

On behalf of myself and the charity, I would like to say a massive heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported the event!!
