Welcome welcome to the inky forest blog.  I am a painter, illustrator and musician and whether songwriting, painting pictures, or drawing I like to use image and narrative as a means of crafting connections between the world within and around us.

My winter challenge is to write a new post every week (and if I’m really on it-on a Monday morning) which will include artists I am currently exploring through my work, books I am reading and perhaps even some musings on my own current creative process.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy.


As it is the dawn of this new blog I thought this painting by Odilon Redon the French symbolist artist (1840-1916) would be the perfect beginning.



Odilon Redon, Aurora . Circa 1910
