Inspiration From Nature

Nature is a huge source of inspiration for me. I live in a tiny village in East Yorkshire, with fields and woodlands all around, so nature is what surrounds me in my day to day life...

I'm lucky enough to be able to get out into the fields every day walking my dog...

And I will often find little cones, leaves, feathers or berries that inspire me. I have a nature box at home, so I always have something to draw, even in winter.

Some days it's the patterns in the icy puddles that inspire me, or the lattice work of tree branches...

Some early mornings, it's a moving sunrise - or a stunning late summer sunset on an evening walk...

I try to take my camera with me wherever I go, even if it's just in the garden, so that I can capture that moment of inspiration for later...

Here are some of the patterns and inspirations I found in nature last year...
