Doodling in between times

When I’ve got just a few minutes to spare I go to my art journal, find a blank page or a space, and doodle.

These are the background layers that inspire what comes next.

This is how I fill the scraps of time while I’m waiting for paint to dry, or a file to upload, or just waiting for ideas to land.

There’s a real freedom in knowing it will get covered in sketches or collage, more doodles and scribbles. I don’t plan this, I don’t even choose the colors, I use whatever pens, paints and brushes are there on my desk.

Sometimes you just got to let art happen.


Be first to see what I’m doing and making in the studio by signing up to my newsletter. Once a month or so I’ll drop in your inbox with more colorful tales!
