This is a sketch I did years ago, in my BRB years (Before Red Bubble) of Tane at three years old. I drew it with coloured pencil crayons and really enjoyed doing it. But then, because I didn’t know what else to do with it, I just left it lying around tucked into a folder somewhere for years. (Tane is 9 years old now.)


ballerina, ballet, colored, coloured pencil crayons, crayons, little girl, micklyn, toddler, tulle, tutu

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    This is such a different style to your other RB artwork but I think it is simply charming. The subject and the composition are perfect. It must be lovely for Tane to look back on too!

  • thanks so much for your kind comment, stamptout!
