I post this picture on Twitter most years, it is a (watercolour) painting I did after visiting the WW1 battlefields in 2010, to retrace the steps of my grandfather William Brims. I grew up hearing about my Dad’s dad and knew a little bit about what he did in the war, but going over there,Continue reading “Corner of a foreign field…..”
Imagine waking up one day and everything you thought you knew about yourself had changed.

My expressive life drawing classes with Chris Wood is a huge learning curve each week. I am really enjoying the challenges Chris sets us and what I’ve been able to achieve.
