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.

One Month Down!
It's not been a bad week, the sessions I had seemed to go well and I've been planning another round of ringing round for next week. There's still a lot of the area I haven't got to yet. I had 23 people in one session last week, I split it into two separate hour sessions. The lady there bought me a card and a plant to say thank you for the free session and also booked me for a paid session. It's slow but still moving slowly in the right direction. The above drawings are of Flo, the cat. She was a bit miffed as I wasn't sitting down and giving her a cuddle. As she was sitting staring at me, I started sketching her. She wasn't that pleased. Even the weather has not been that bad this week and it's been nice to have a little brightness around the middle of the day. I've found if I sit with my daylight lamp and do some drawing it doesn't feel quite as bad. The days are lengthening slowly, January is nearly out of the way and February is a slightly shorter month so we'll soon be in March. We're getting there.
