How Glooskap Made The Birds
"Glooskap waved his magic wand as was his custom, and at once great flocks of little birds sprang from the ground where the fallen leaves had lain. And they twittered and sang in a great chorus and flew back to the trees. They were of beautiful colours like the leaves that had given them birth. There were Robin Red-breasts and Thrushes all brown and red, from the red and brown leaves of the Oak. And there were Finches and Humming-birds all yellow and green and brown from the leaves of the Alder and the Willow, and they glowed like willows in the sunlight and fluttered like a leaf upon the air. There were Yellowbirds and Canadian Warblers from the golden Beech and Birch leaves. And there were Scarlet Tanagers and Orioles and Grosbeaks all of changing colours, red and purple and brown, from the leaves the Canadian Maple. And they all sang to the children and the children were all very happy again."

I am a London based artist and illustrator, working primarily with a mix of traditional drawing methods and digital processes.
I enjoy drawing people, animals, landscapes, seascapes, flowers, etc.
After a trip to Vancouver, I have found myself drawing bears, pine trees and mountains and illustrating Canadian first nations folk tales.
