‘Creativity is my passion. I love to explore different mediums and styles, from sketching to painting, writing and illustrating, and even photography. I never tire of nature, which, above all, is my constant source of inspiration.’

To be released on the 7th December 2021, the Sketching Birds book features 6 step-by-step sketching projects: Sparrow, Collared Dove, Magpie, Mallard Ducking, Kestrel, and Black-headed Gull.

Large Garden Birds



Birds of Prey



Whilst the birds in the book are British birds, the techniques apply to all birds, be it ones we see in our gardens, or more exotic species.



Whether it be doodling simple shapes, patterns and textures, or honing your drawing skills, sketching should always be a relaxing, fun activity.

In this book I will show you some of my techniques for creating loose and lively bird sketches.

With six step by step projects and additional sketches, you'll find everything you need to begin sketching your own favourite birds.
