Its been a while since I wrote a journal entry. The first thing to say is that I have survived my first year! I celebrated the end of year one as a full-time artist at the beginning of June by launching my Playful Pets competition to win a portrait of your pet, which went down well! I am also delighted to say that I met my ambitious target of drawing 100 dogs in the first year by drawing 108 dogs, 4 rabbits, 2 humans and a cat.

In summary, it's twice as many hours as my previous job in a shop, and doesn't pay as well (yet!), but I wouldn't change it for the world. Really looking forward to year two.

Born in Northumberland, it is my home county that inspires much of my art. I sell my artwork in galleries and at craft fairs throughout Northumberland, and I also provide a popular commission service to the public including portraits, pets and landscapes.

You can change it at your deviantID ;) Just click on the pencil button at the top right corner and choose Edit widget. There you can change your skill level from the drop down list at 'I am an artist' :)
