I jumped at the chance to join The Sisterhood of the Travelling Sketchbook a few months ago when I read about the fascinating concept on Anne Lawson’s blog.
Ann who is a talented botanical artist has not only bound together a book from paper ends from preloved paper for “The Sisterhood” to add their marks to, she has also bound together a group of creative bloggers from around the world, united us into a community with a common bond, the Travelling Sketchbook.
I’m the second contributor, and while I’m not really obsessed about food, it seemed that as I came to this wonderful concept through my food blog it was apt to stay on point.
I’m very proud of my artistic family. I’m the living link between my paternal Grandfather an artist of note but not notoriety (he was an stamp designer/engraver) and my gifted and incredibly creative grandaughter. I’ve dabbled with 2D art forms for my entire adult life. I turn to the camera most often because of this blog, but I love to draw, usually large strong multi media images, but sometimes a delicate watercolour or coloured pencil drawing will appear by my hand.
The words I write which are most appreciated by strangers are recipes for delicious food, so I’ll let the image of my page speak for itself.
