A little bit about me. I am a stay at home mum, based in Waterlooville, Hampshire, UK, whose background is in Art. I have a BA Hons Degree which for a long time has been left to the way side whilst raising children. A while ago, I picked up my daughter's pencil and quickly sketched a drawing of my baby boy. I hadn't picked up a pencil to draw a portrait in twenty years, and I just wanted to see if I could still draw! The five minute sketch was rather successful and so I wanted to take it further. I decided for my father's birthday present that I would draw, from a photo, a portrait of my mum with my then 3 month old son. She died not long after that photo was taken and I thought this would be a lovely memory for him to keep.
