In March 2015 I introduced a new feature to the blog section of this website called Ponderings.

My personal illustration work has been taking a broader and more philosophical turn (rather than the natural history inspired projects I’ve been involved with elsewhere) and Ponderings enable me to share some of my thoughts, ideas and experiences.  The illustrations here are more conceptual, and don’t always feature plants or animals…

One of my favourite things to do is sit in a cafe with a cup of tea or hot chocolate, think and draw – it gives me space for new ideas, to make connections and find different ways to understand things.  On one such occassion, I drew a picture of a pond in a tea cup, and Ponderings was born…

So far, I have pondered about:

The Marriage Bubble

Love (Three Illustrations)

Personal Growth

Something in the Water

Fairies and why Neil Gaiman is my favourite nature writer
