#dailyartchallenge is a self-directed project that I have pursued since January 2017. Inspired by Jennifer Orkin Lewis’ article, ‘Top six daily drawing tips‘, the aim is to draw something every day, and post it on social media by way of accountability. it was originally meant to last 365 days, but after the paid commissions I have gained through #dailyartchallenge it is now an integral part of my practice.

To help keep up momentum, I also use prompts from the guided sketchbook by the same artist, Draw Every Day, Draw Every Way (Amazon UK link). I am increasingly diversifying from the book however, developing my own experimental style through discovery, trial and error, working largely with photographs of local surroundings, home life and architectural features that put creative fire in my belly every day.
