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.

Storms and a Full Moon
I was working on this last week but I'm not really happy with it. It looks too staged. I can go into a list of things that I'm not really happy with but I won't bore you. I'll just look upon it as a piece which I learn from.
It's been more like summer this week and it's been lovely. I do moan about the heat as I'm really not built for it, being of the red haired and fair skinned variety. I can burn in ten minutes and just go back to being white after. So I tend to stay in the shade where possible but I do enjoy it being sunny. Life feels easier when it's sunny.
It's been a week of unexpected events and more worries in the news. I've felt on edge all week without having a proper reason to feel on edge. Business has been slow at work, as everyone is out in the sun taking photos. They will probably all come in when the weather cools down a bit. We had a very violent thunder storm mid week with hail the size of golf balls. We thought the windows were going to come in at one point. A lot of the plants were damaged and it flooded terribly in ten minutes. The cats hid under my bed. Although we were swimming in water, it had all gone by the next morning. There was a beautiful full moon this week too. I'm hoping to go to a conference in Cambridge next week.
