This summer, I decided to take part in the #100dayprojectscotland21 challenge. It's been a fantastic way to connect with artists and meet new people online, offering support and encouragement in the group.
I instantly found that my creative productivity increased, and I've found many ways to keep inspired and curious in my art. I've been able to share digital and fine artwork and some of my illustration work, blending it with poetry and music.
I am currently quietly working away on my first book of illustrated poetry, getting it ready for release in 2022. It will be available with a special edition vinyl of original music - new songs inspired by my poems. I'm looking forward to sharing the work with you soon, along with the title!
A genuine silver lining to the stress and experience of a global pandemic has been the opportunity to complete my MA and focus on this latest creative project. For the first time ever, I haven't felt rushed or like I'm spinning too many creative plates. I've simply put my head down and got on with the work.
I hope you'll enjoy it!
