I have just finished my M.A in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art and thoroughly enjoyed it. I consider myself an illustrator and I work for a company called 'Creative Minds' who take art and craft sessions to older adults and adults with learning disabilities. The following entries are my drawings and musings. All images are copyright of Kerina Strevens. Please contact me on my website kerinastrevens.co.uk.

Best of Times,Worst of Times
This is a drawing some of you who know me well may recognise.
What a week! Started this week with a heavy cold and a storm which knocked out the electricity for two days and grid locked Ipswich with closed roads. I struggled through all that and swapped my day off for Thursday which was just as well as I had to call paramedics out to my Mum, whose nose decided to bleed massively for no good reason. We couldn't stop it the conventional ways so I had to call a paramedic and she was taken to hospital and had it cauterised. Later on that day however, I went to a Quentin Blake lecture and he had a few words with me and signed my book. That was fantastic - he's always been an inspiration to me.
Crashed the next day as my cold still hasn't gone and I feel really bad. Hopefully I'll have time to heal now, I think I did most of last week on adrenalin.
