New York City Fire Escape



I’ve been enjoying using oval and unusual frames for my compositions recently. This New York City Fire Escape illustration is a bit of a throw back for me, as I was in New York last March- but Is till like to look at my photographs and remember. We got a fair amount of snow- and some sunshine too. The fire escapes there are just one small detail of many that I love about the city.


I had a couple of drawings in a recent show in Dublin, so I hope to show those here soon, stay tuned!

Saw-whet Owl Pen and Ink Drawing

Original Monochrome Owl, Northern Saw-whet Owl, Pen and Ink Drawing Owl in Black and White
This owl drawing is of a Northern Saw-whet owl, which I only learned about recently. This is a tiny owl, only about seven inches high, the same weight as a robin. It has lovely eyes, in my drawing they are only half open, because he’s relaxing in a tree, but when the owl is on the hunt they are open wide.

Snow White with Red Rose Dress

ImageThis is my first fairytale illustration in a while, but it was so much fun I think I might return to the subject matter. I always liked the part of the description on her in the story that said she had skin as white as snow and hair as black as ebony, so I was inspired by that section of the story.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend


ACEO collection- Watercolor and Pen and Ink Art Card Editions and Originals


The ACEO format is a lot of fun to work with, I feel like when I look back at a collection I’ve made together in a similar palette, it shows the appeal of this type of work in a new way- you can really use it to construct your own storyboard.
