Essex Artists Travelling Sketchbook

A wonderful project for Essex artists to contribute a page of their art to this sketchbook that at the end of the year is a bible of work. I am very proud to have been invited to draw in the book - must say it is such a precious thing - makes me really nervous.

We are delighted to be hosting the Travelling Sketchbook at the Brightlingsea Art and Craft Trail 20-21 July 2019
