Carrying this sketchbook with me has encouraged me to record things and places that I see, wherever I go on a day to day basis. A collection of places and things that may have inspired me in some way, or maybe that they have simply caught my eye. Elise Engler’s work was my main inspiration and motivation for keeping this little book in my bag together with my water colours. I think my sketching has became more expressive and looser because of this routine that I have adopted. The challenge is to continue recording what I see and not get complacent.
