The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker has to be one of my favourite games. I adore the soundtrack, the character design and the overall story as you play through it, but most of all I love it because it's the game I have the fondest memories of growing up. During the school holidays, especially … Continue reading The Mighty Makar
When in doubt I pick up my pencils and paint brushes and I sketch out birds, and recently I've been doing an awful lot of them!

I've already done a fair few paintings of toucans … Continue reading Little Emerald Toucanet
Using natural objects as bases for a canvas is one of my favourite things, so a couple of years ago when I came across painting on pebbles and rocks, I was hooked. I've tried my hand at a sharpie mandala before, and have even written the word calm on one of my pebbles to use … Continue reading The Painted Ladybird
