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.

Time Off For Good Behaviour
This is an Alice in Wonderland doodle which I just sat down and drew from my head today. I just wanted to loosen up and play a bit, use a bit of colour, as I feel I've been a bit bogged down with work and worries and I wanted to just not worry and produce something. I want to work on my figures quite seriously now as they're lacking. The more worried I get about things the less likely I'm able to do anything constructive. I want to get out with a sketch book but I don't like having to field the conversation of the curious. Just got to bite the bullet again.
I've been out and about this week to Lavenham and to Cromer and had a couple of ice creams and a very nice cream tea in Lavenham. Warm scones and everything. I hadn't got anything planned for my time off as I thought I was going to be in hospital at this time. While I'm waiting I've been told to lose as much weight as I can so that I recover as quickly as possible. Cream teas and ice cream don't help a lot but they do help with mental well being!
